Is there a way to set the scroll bar width?
I've Googled it to no avail -- instructions don't work.
Thanks

Right click Desktop, Personalize, Window Color, Advanced appearance
settings, Item tab, Scrollbar.

There is no "Advanced" there.
Perhaps because of my personalizations; theme etc.
That "Advanced" route seem limited to Windows Classic.

It is there. If you're using an Aero theme, then when you go into
Colors, look for the words "Advanced appearance settings..." - they're
not a button, just blue words, but they are a link. In a Classic theme,
just clicking on the Color takes you right there, no "Advanced" needed.

... basically it's another language and unless you've studied it, it's
difficult to grasp. I know people get outraged at me saying it, but it's only
my opinion. I'm not telling people who adore Shakespeare to stop adoring it
this minute. - Jane Horrocks, in Radio Times 30 July - 5 August 2011

The trick I was missing:
FIRST select "My theme"; THEN select "Windows Color / Windows Classic"
(not intuitive!) then select scrollbar and adjust width.

Yes, there is! Have a look at Winaero Tweaker and search for
"Scrollbars". Worked perfectly for me just now.

It works ! Thanks.
But if there are two vertical scroll bars (a sidebar present),
the right side bar (main bar) is not wider.
I'm seeing that in Agent right now.
