If I was a tablet user, I would set the scrollbars to always be visible, and then also drag it, not click it. Still not great, but was it ever great for tablet users? Was the key the up and down arrows at the top and bottom of the scroll bars? Isn't there a way to scroll using the pen and tablet like you can using two fingers on a trackpad?
One thing that bothers me about the appear-as-needed scroll bars in Finder is when I move my mouse down towards the bottom of the window and they get larger (the horizontal one), it makes it very difficult to interact with the last list item in the Finder window (since the scroll bar overlays 90% of it). Know of any settings or workarounds for that problem?
I know what you mean. I either just expand the window a bit, or click on the item above it and mouse down.
I downloaded Mountain Lion when it came out. Video 855 Scroll Bars. I went into my documents and tried to scroll like the video says...Doesn't work.I have my settings like the video says. What am I doing wrong? : )
Which option are you using? The video describes many ways to scroll. Which one is not working for you?
I've had several problems with the bottom scroll bar when I need the bottom folder or file; it jumps into the way.
The fn+arrow keys were a godsend to learn. Especially left/right.
I think a word of thank you would not be enough I have waited for Mt Lion to be on the market but when I got it hate it because the Scroll Bar problems
Now I am happy that your instructions had help me get it right.
Thank you again.
Thanks for the video. As a Windows convert, I am used to having scroll bars being displayed in my window at all times, but I do not think I will ever get used to having them appear and disappear occasionally.
The new(ish) scrollbar system (sans up and down arrows) kind of sucks for tablet users. No fine control of scrolling without either dropping the pen or using the other hand to access arrow keys.
