"Where are my Scroll Bars?"

Most of ACSD computers are or soon will be up to an OS X v10.7 Lion or later, and the biggest obstacle is the trackpad on the laptops. Most of our staff love their new computers, but want their scroll bars back.  Personally, I can't blame them. It took time for me as well to make the adjustment. We are all are creature of habits, and when something that we are use to being there all the time, it takes time to adjust for ALL of us!! So, I think the tips and tricks below might make your life a little bit easier -- I HOPE!!!


My favorite tip:
Two finger scroll up and down
Special Note: Scroll bars will only appear when you are scrolling. When not scrolling, they disappear to not get in the way of your content. You can change this behavior in the General pane of System Preferences, if desired.  

  • System Preferences
  • Click General Pane and then choose the option “Always” under Show Scroll Bars                      

Watch the following two-minute video regarding your 10.7 Trackpad Options:

Please make note you can change your own trackpad settings by following the steps below:

1. Go to your Apple (top left) then click on System Preferences

2. Click on Trackpad

3. Three Different Tabs - Point & Click, Scroll & Zoom, More Gesture -- 
Customize your settings

More detail information regarding your trackpad settings can be found on the Apple support page (link below).
