Stop Internet Explorer 11 Scroll Bar from Disappearing

If you’re annoyed with your scroll bar disappearing every time you take a pause, here’s a fix. I have to start by saying I have Windows 10 and it worked perfectly for me. It may not work for all Windows versions.

  1. Click START on your computer and type “Notepad”.
  2. Paste the following code in Notepad.
    @-ms-viewport{width:auto!important}
  3. Save the file somewhere on your computer you can find later, and name it something like “IEScrollbar.css”. Change the drop-down file type to “All”.
  4. Open Internet Explorer and click on the gear on the top right. Choose “Internet Options”.
  5. Click the “Accessibility” button at the bottom.
  6. Click the box next to “Format documents using my style sheet” then locate the file you just created. Click OK.
  7. Close Internet Explorer and open it again.

You should now always see your right-side scroll bar.

  1. On my Windows 7 machine, I simply opened Internet Options, went to the Advanced tab and un-selected “Enable visual styles on buttons and controls in webpages”, under the Browsing subgroup. Boom – no more disappearing scrollbars 🙂
