Missing Scroll Bars

Issue/Question

I need to view more information on a webpage but there are no scroll bars to move the page down / over.

Environment

  • OS X 10.7+

Cause

The scrollbars in new versions of OS X are hidden until activated by scrolling, making them invisible by default. Some websites may not interact with the controls properly, making it difficult or even impossible to navigate through the page.

Resolution

  1. Click the Apple menu from the upper-right corner. 
  2. Select System Preferences.
  3. Click General.
  4. Look for Show scroll bars; select Always.
