Scrollbars that match Windows 7's native appearance.
Newer versions of Chrome have replaced the system native scrollbars with a new design that, among other things, lacks the arrow buttons. This extension restores the scrollbars to the native Windows 7 appearance, including restoring the arrow buttons.
*** FAQs and Common Problems ***
* Why does Chrome warn that Win7 Scrollbars can "access my data on all websites"? Are you tracking me?
It does only one thing: restyle the scrollbars. And it does that entirely locally, on your computer.
Chrome is providing this warning because CSS is technically able to do other things, such as add and remove content from pages that you view. Win7 Scrollbars doesn't do that, but Chrome has no way of knowing that, so it provides the warning out of an abundance of caution.
* This doesn't work with drop-down menus.
That's correct. As far as I know, it is not possible to fix these with an extension.
* This doesn't work with URLs beginning with chrome://, with Chrome's built-in PDF viewer, or with Chrome's developer tools.
Unfortunately, extensions do not have access to these areas of Chrome.
* This doesn't work with URLs beginning with file://.
It does ... but you have to enable it. Open Chrome's menu and go to Tools / Extensions, or simply type chrome://extensions in the address bar. Look for Win7 Scrollbars, and check the box that says "Allow access to file URLs."
* This doesn't work in Chrome's incognito mode.
It does ... but you have to enable it. Open Chrome's menu and go to Tools / Extensions, or simply type chrome://extensions in the address bar. Look for Win7 Scrollbars, and check the box that says "Allow in incognito."
