Make Scrollbars Always Show and Disable Transparency in Windows 10
Windows 10 is a constantly evolving OS and part of the evolution is the Fluent Design System. Formerly codenamed Project Neon, it’s a new design language developed by Microsoft in 2017 and is rapidly becoming an integral part of Windows 10. Not only does it add the eye-candy you’d expect from a modern operating system, it affects how you interact with apps to get things done. In fact, the design language is starting to make its way to Office 365, too. However, some of its features aren’t for everyone. Here are a couple of tips on how to disable some of its notable features if you’re not a fan.
Keep Scrollbars Always Visible and Disable Transparency
In updated versions of Windows 10, scrollbars are set to automatically hide when you’re not active with an open window. It’s an example of Conscious Controls that only appear when needed. When you move the mouse to the edge of a Window, there is a slight hesitation while the scrollbar appears. It does take some getting used to. And if you’re new to Windows 10, and used to a certain rhythm with your workflow, you might not be a fan. The cool thing is you can make the scrollbars always visible.
Click Start then Settings
Click on Ease of Access
Click on Display then scroll down to the “Simplify and personalize Windows” section and turn off the switch for "Show transparency in Windows" and "Automatically hide scroll bars in Windows".
