Evolution Email - How to customize scrollbars

Hi Experts,

I'm looking for a way to make the scrollbars inside Evolution wider and non-disappearing. Any assistance is appreciated.

Thanks!

Thanks. I'm referring to the Gnome Evolution Email App that comes with Zorin Pro 16.

You can affect system-wide scrollbar width with a custom gtk.css file placed in your ~/.config/gtk-3.0 directory.

It may be possible to isolate only the Evolution app, by sussing out its css class. I would need to log into Gnome and launch Evolution with GTK-Inspector to see if that can be located and whether or not it classifies the scrollbars. If it does not, then only a system-wide setting would affect it.

I too would like to have the change in the scroll bars but I do not have enough Linux experience to know how to find, much less modify the ".config/gtk-3.0 directory" -- but willing to try.
