    Long ago Mac scroll bars had arrows at the top and bottom of the scroll bar that enabled small amounts of scrolling. I would like to have these back when I have a very large document or lists -- I'm thinking especially of "Photos" view (Cmd-1) in the Photos app. Is there any way to get these arrows back?

    James: Typically you use gestures to do that now. If you use a Trackpad then two fingers up or down do what the arrows used to do. The Magic Mouse has that too. If it doesn't work for you, check your Trackpad or Mouse System Preferences to make sure you have that gesture turned on, and maybe see if you changed it to something else.

    Brian: Yes, I am showing TextEdit in the video. Notes is one of the core apps that comes with your Mac. If you use iCloud, Notes will sync between iPhone and Mac.
