Horizontal Scroll Bar Missing

Using Mac OS X, users may not be able to see the horizontal scroll bar when viewing the Bb Grade Center or other applications. It will appear there are only a few columns with no way to get to the rest of the columns. This is caused by a change in the default behavior of scroll bars in OS X starting with Lion.  Current browsers (Safari 6.05, Firefox 24, Chrome 29)  will not display the horizontal scroll bars. This is also a problem with some browsers on Windows XP and Windows 7.

So in short, the website you are accessing is not having a problem. The current browsers are now embracing your system preferences. Below are some ways to fix the issue should you encounter it.

To fix this on Mac OS X:

  1. Open System Preferences, either from the Dock or from the Apple menu.
  2. In the System Preferences, select the General preference pane.
  3. The middle section of the General preference pane controls when scroll bars appear.
  4. Select "Always" from the Show Scroll Bars options.
Windows XP
  1. Control Panel  -> Display Properties.
  2. Click on the Appearance tab and select the Advanced button.
  3. Select the Scroll Bar from the item drop down list and change the setting to 19.
  4. Submit.
Windows 7
  1. Control Panel [Windows Start Button > Control Panel].
  2. Under Appearance and Personalization, click Change the theme.
  3. Click Window Color and then click Advanced appearance settings. In the Item: drop-down list, choose Scrollbar and select a number less than 20 from the Size: option (17 is the default value).
  4. Click OK.
