    any reg edits to enlarge the scroll bar?

    so i loved the reg edit that enlarged the right menu...it's made a huge difference in my need (or lack there of) for the stylus. but then when i need to scroll down a page, i find myself having to pull it out. i was just wondering if anyone has figured out a way to enlarge it for finger scrolling?

    Ripped from the XDADevelopers Wiki:

    Change the thickness of scrollbars:

    To change the thickness of the scrollbars at the right/bottom of documents larger than the screen, adjust...

    For the horizontal (bottom) scrollbar:

    HKLM\System\GWE\cyHScr = 9 (DWORD decimal)

    For the vertical (right) scrollbar:

    HKLM\System\GWE\cxVScr = 9 (DWORD decimal)

    The default thickness is 13. You can set the value to pretty much anything you like

    Change the length of scrollbar arrow buttons:

    To go with changing the thickness of the scrollbars, you may wish to change the length of the scrollbar arrow buttons...

    For the horizontal (bottom) scrollbar arrows:

    HKLM\System\GWE\cyVScr = 9 (DWORD decimal)

    For the vertical (right) scrollbar:

    HKLM\System\GWE\cxHScr = 9 (DWORD decimal)

    The default length is 13. You can set the value to pretty much anything you like.

    thanks a lot. it took me a few times (at first it wasn't changing). 20 is pretty nice size...any more and it really changes the screen orientation. great tip, thanks for taking the time.
