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

  • macOS 10.7+

Cause

The scrollbars in new versions of macOS 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-left corner. 
  2. Select System Preferences.
  3. Click General.
  4. Look for Show scroll bars; select Always.
