7> UI scroll bar width
I noticed scroll bars in modern operating systems getting more and more sidelined. They are getting narrower and therefore harder to click on. Win10 made it even worse, since it hid them in some cases, and I had to hover or click just to get to it. Silly design choices at the expense of usability, which is how I often thought of Windows.
I noticed Zorin also has this (though to a lesser degree). I notice it in LibreOffice and Firefox, where I do most scrolling. The scroll bars are thin; the bit you click on even thinner. The mouse scrollwheel is fine for a small scroll, but not when something is multiple pages long and a click and drag would be more efficient. I tried a plugin in Firefox but it didn’t help. As such, I assume the scrollbar width is a universal OS UI choice. Zorin seems customisable in many ways – is there some setting I missed where I can make the scroll bar wider, like I used to have? Or some hack to do it, a profiles.ini or something? I’m surprised it didn’t seem to be anywhere in Settings or Zorin Appearance, the two most likely places. [As an aside, why isn’t Zorin Appearance part of Settings? Ditto Taskbar Settings. They are all places where we can customise the GUI, so to me it makes sense to have them in a single place, rather than three separate programs. Feature suggestion to help newbies?]
