Off with the pants-Scrollbar preference tips from a blogger who's NOT wearing pants tonight

I saw a complaint that OS X 10.8 (and by extension, 10.9) do not display the Scroll Bars at all times.)

In a word, well made up word, zschau-WHAT? Isn’t this changeable in the System Preferences? Wouldn’t a quick trip to Google find a solution? 

Yes, and thanks to the good people at OS X Daily, they have a fix for it right here.

Using my OS X 10.8.2 test partition, I tried out myself and this is what happened.

This is what the Finder in 10.8.2 looked like before. Note NO Scrollbars either on the left side and on the bottom.


Scroll Bars off in 10 point 8 point 2 before changes


Why do they act this way? Because General Preferences in System Preferences is set that out of the freakin’ box/download, that’s why!

So a few changes are made to General Preferences as shown below. The Scroll Bars are turned to always on.

And now we have scroll bars on! All the time!


Now we have scroll bars
