Scroll Bars in Calendar

Hi all

Can anyone tell me where the scroll bar controls are for the calendar
please?
When I view our shared calendar in single day mode, in the right pane I see
the all-day events above and the timed events below.
There is a separate scroll bar for all-day events and timed events.
On another user's PC there is a single scroll bar controlling both all-day
and timed events.
The problem in the latter case is that adding more than 14 all-day events
causes the late additions to drop off the end of the viewed range.

Hope this makes sense

TIA

Phil

how do I re-set a lost vertical scroll bar in outlook?

I have not been able to figure out how to display the horizontal scroll bar
in Outlook 2007. The verticle scroll bar is visible in messages, but I do
not see the horizontal scroll bar. Can anyone help? Many thanks!

In IE6 there is a "ghost" vertical browser scroll bar but in Firefox there
is no browser scroll bar..the content fills the browser left to right.
Is there a way to eliminate the unneeded ghost scroll bar in IE6?

there is no scroll bar in any outlook appointment, so when the text is long i
have to use the arrow keys to scroll down rather than the convenient way of
grabbing a scroll bar.

how do i get the scroll bar there?

thanks.

Is there a way I can configure the scroll bar in Outlook 2003 to scroll the
list of messages (in the inbox and others) by grabbing the scroll box? Seems
like there should be a way. Tnx

This will probably be considered minor compared to the problems I see on the forum, but I've managed to solve every quirk in Office 2013 that annoys me except this one:

By default, the vertical scroll bar in the folder pane (on the left column) is hidden until a mouse pointer is placed over it. This is causing me additional, useless keystrokes. In the past, I knew exactly where the scroll bar was and could go directly to it. Now, I have to place the pointer over the entire bar and wait for the scroll bar to appear, then move to it. Once or twice is one thing, but when one has to do this all day long, it's really annoying.

Note, this has no connection to the "hardware acceleration" issue experienced by some. I suspect I'm stuck with it, but thought perhaps someone here might have a solution.

Thanks.

The message headers pane contains several columns, such as "Subject", "From",
"To", "Date sent", etc. The length of the line is larger than the witdth of the
pane. So I expected to have a horizontal scroll bar, such as in Outlook Express.

There is none and I cannot find in the "HELP" a way of being able to read
whatever is at the right of the pane border. The only way is to temporarily
reduce the width of one or more column(s), which is quite cumbersome.

Is it possible to require an horizontal scroll bars (The vertical doe exist !)
and how can I do this ?

Thank you in advance for your advice.

Hi,

I was replying to a mail that had a long table in it. While writting the
response, I had to refer to the table. It was surprising to see that there
was NO horizontal scroll bar in the message window. I had to refer to the
data in the extreme right table cell by moving the cursor.

hi
running windows xp and outlook express. logged on today to find scroll bar
will not behave. works on its own, goes right to bottom and wont respond to
any direction from mouse. pc is giving error beeps when not even touched!
compacted, removed, defragged, then did it all again in safe mode- still
have problem.
any instructions would help. internet explorer is behaving similarly, cant
navigate to a site (any site!) for help. when internet properties box is
opened, (to check settings, etc..) pc freezes. don't ask how this is working
enough to post this!
thanks in advance- pete

I have a couple of users who for one reason or another have added a table of
names + email addresses into the blank window area when you open up a
contact. In Outlook 2002 this window was along the bottom and therefore could
fit in the whole table width. However, since they have now gone onto Outlook
2003 the window has moved to the right hand side and the table is chopped off
about half way. There is a scroll bar to move up and down, but not one to
move left and right. Is there a way using the 2002 view in 2003 or can we add
in a scroll bar somehow?

Alternatively she will have to place the table in a excel worksheet and link
the workbook to the contact which she doesnt really want to have to do.

Thanks

The vertical scroll bar in the Outlook (2007) Preview Pane. I can't find any
setting for this.

I have a huge hierarchy of folders in Outlook, and there are so many that the
folders are branched farther and farther to the right. I have to stretch the
pane half way across the window in order to see most of them.

It would help if i could include a horizontal Scroll bar, so i don't have to
stretch the pane.

I have recently finished re-speaking to Microsoft's Outlook team again and found out the "proper" way to submit feature requests.

• Outlook Notes Scroll Bar - If you're not happy with the fact that there are STILL no scroll bars in the Outlook Notes component (Remember that even the ancient Windows Notepad.exe has scroll bars, as well as Windows Mobile Notes!!! However WinVista & Win7 Sticky Notes don't have scroll bars which may have something to do with the underlying form that Outlook Notes may also be using.), then PLEASE provide feedback to Microsoft. After speaking with Microsoft's Supportability Program Managers, they stated that my request was the FIRST time they heard about this issue, and that they need to receive MULTIPLE requests EVERY MONTH to create an internal BUG# to first document this request, so make sure they continue to hear about this EVERY MONTH until it is implemented! Save a reminder in your personal calendar application to click on the following link and re-submit your request, like I am doing at the beginning of each month, until this feature is added to the current or next version of Office!.

• Improvement Suggestions - Use the following "Microsoft Supportability Program Managers (SPM)" link to submit your suggestion/request (https://Feedback.Office.Microsoft.com). Note that community participants may vote for suggestions and Microsoft may use the votes to help prioritize features in upcoming versions, but most important of all Microsoft needs MULTIPLE requests EVERY MONTH for this feature to put it higher in the the list of fixes!!!

Sample message (1000 character limit):
"Hello, the most BASIC and USEFUL feature that I would like to see added to Outlook's Notes component are SCROLL BARS for notes! BOTH Windows Mobile Notes AND Windows Notepad.exe applications have had scroll-bars for years and they are BASIC application, so why not such a popular, advanced, and valuable tool as Outlook? PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE add this feature to the next Outlook update as many people have been waiting years for this feature! If scroll bars were added to Outlook Notes, then not only would both Outlook and Windows Mobile applications be consistent, but Outlook Notes would actually be more useable and advanced than the simple Sticky Notes program within newer versions of Windows. But I think even Sticky Notes should have scroll bars as the original Notepad.exe program still has them! And it would be fine if the scroll bars were the same color as the note, to keep a clean look, but at least you would have the functionality."

Hi all,

I have a laptop running Windows XP Professional, SP3 and Outlook 2003. If I
reply to an email, there is no scroll bar in the reply window. I can scroll
up and down using the arrow keys but this can sometimes be a pain especially
if the reply is long. Anyone know how I can get a scroll bar to appear ? Many
thanks.

Regards Colin.

Not sure what I've done or my young son has done, but I now cannot click on a
scroll bar in a mail message to scroll down or click on body of email. Also
when in Outlook contacts unable to click to a particular field in a new
contact to enter info, I have to tab down. Mouse works to close messages,
open etc Any ideas on what I can do to fix this?

Hi Samster,

When you look at the task pane where your icons are, click on the folder
icon (folder list). This will bring back the scrollbar. But it will minimize
the reduntant favorite folders. This shows both the vertical & horizontal
scrollbars. I hope this helps.

We have several users that access OWA 2010 via Windows XP & IE8.Â* All patches are applied.Â* On certain computer systems, the user experiences a condition where the scroll bars in OWA 2010 do not work at all (they are whited out).Â* You must use the arrow keys to move between messages.Â* This condition is computer specific and cannot be replicated on all other machines.Â* The strange part is that there is a variety of system images, model types, etc. in use so there does not seem to be a common thread.Â* These users did not have any problems with OWA 2007.

We have tried to reset all IE8 settings to their defaults, reboot, etc.Â* Any ideas?Taylor

We have many people using the same calendar. When many people add an all day
meeting then the scroll bar no longer works when viewing a calendar thru OWA
2007. The scroll bar is displayed and you can drag it, but the view does not
change. This worked in OWA 2003 and works correctly when you are in the
office using Outlook, but not thru the web.

Our organization uses an exchange account for our out of office calendar.  We post people that are going to be out for the day as all day events so that we can open the out of office calendar and see who is out.  The screen will only display a set amount of people based on the resolution setting of windows.

The problem that we are experiencing is that a few folks have a sroll bar that allows them to scroll through the all day events and a separate scroll bar that allows them to scroll through the individual events on the calendar for the day.   Most others do not have the first scroll bar that allows them to scroll through the all day events part of the view.

Hopefully this makes sense.  If not, I will try and post a screen shot of what I am referring to.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

I have recently gone to using Outlook 2007. I have my Inbox configured to
show messages (to, from, date, etc.) in the primary window, and I have what I
think is called a "reading pane" below. In OL 2003, this had a scroll bar;
I don't have one in 2007. How do I set up a scroll bar so I can scroll
through the text of emails in the Reading Pane?
