Widen scroll bar in left pane

Is there a way to widen the scroll bar here?

Yes. I know because I wanted it to. I don’t remember all of it, but there are themes with wide scrollbars. Ok, I think I see what I did. In the theme editor for the theme you want you can check the “useSystemScrollbar” option in the list of Elementary controls. Then save the theme with a name and use it.

Thanks for answering. Your suggestion works for teh scroll bar on th eright but not the one on the left as shown in my screenshot.

As @steveshank has said it is possible and,
this has been covered more times than I can remember, you can view this by
searching the Forum.
You will be given 3 options:
1./ Use a Theme where the scroll bar is wide
2./ Use the Theme Editor to change this yourself
3./ Edit the XML file for the Theme

If you are absolutely stuck tell me the Theme you are using and I will do it for you.

I am all set now. I don’t think I was saving my changes correctly.


I had a terrible time with that myself. I am now using Theme_004 by blank because it took me that long to stumble upon whatever I had to do.
