    Just wondering if it's possible to move the position of the scrollbar from the right of the screen to the left of the screen? I'm left handed and find it quite awkward when I'm using the touchpad on my Vista laptop. :suprised:

    Not sure if this works in Firefox but does work in IE7.

    Download the zip file below which contains a css file.

    Go into Internet options at the general tab.

    At the bottom click on accessibility.

    In the user style sheet section, tick the box next to Format documents using my style sheet then browse to the css file. Restart IE.
    Some other elements may change on the page other the just the scrollbar.

    Not to change the scrollbar no
    Someone needs to invent one, it's discriminating against us lefties. :devious::laugh::crosseyed::laugh:
    Thanks zombie but I don't use IE I use Firefox, I've since found how to change it.

    about:config in Firefox address bar

    Scroll to layout.scrollbar.side and change integer to 3

    Easy peasy

    What did you expect them to say?

    "Because you are an idiot and cannot be trusted with your own computer, much less ours, we have disabled this feature for you."

    "Having been warned, would you like to continue?"

    Now that's extreme.






    Is someone having a bad day? Did someone not get a toy to play with? Did someone forget to take his medication today? Yesterday? The day before that?


    When I count down from 3 you will awaken feeling refreshed... or just nauseous.
