How to force Windows to show scroll bars for programs, like Adobe Acrobat and IrfanView?

+2
−0

Why programs on Windows 10 don't give me scroll bars? In Adobe Acrobat, I can't scroll down to see whole window. In IrfanView, I can't scroll right to see whole file name. See below.

This is a good question. I have seen this problem for years, not just in Windows 10. It seems that dialog boxes sometimes (i.e., always the same ones, but not all dialog boxes) do not have the same scrolling as regular application windows. manassehkatz‭ about 1 month ago

This may not be problem in Windows. Cause, when I was building softwares using Python.. I noticed if I do something wrong in Code or, if I don't add scroll bar than, it happens. So, I will say to contact/mail Adobe team.... If you are using Virtual Machine than, it may be problem from Virtual Machine also. But, if you aren't using Virtual Machine than contact otherwise wait for answer and add information of virtual machine in your question also. Istiak‭ about 1 month ago

"Underneath the hood" a window has certain attributes that the programmer must specify when they create the window. Including if it should have scroll bars or not. So I'm pretty sure this is a problem for the specific application. Also, not all programs are "responsive" but could have a fixed size. And then if you happen to have a low resolution monitor, the window won't fit. That's why desktop devs should always test their programs on the crappiest PC they can find. Lundin‭ 8 days ago
