    Is there any way to change the scroll barcolor from the light blue to a
    different color so it is more visable?

    Neither Windows XP's desktop or taskbar have scrollbars. So in WHAT
    *application* are you asking for help? Maybe that app is complying with
    whatever theme you elected to use for Windows, so try a different theme. In
    the past, I have seen (but never bothered to use) theme editors. PC Mag had
    one (which is still free although they got chintzy and started charging for
    access to their downloads area) and, I think, X-Teq let you make edits to
    various objects (but don't recall that you could save the changes as .theme
    file, only static changes to the existing theme). Both went beyond the
    simple adjustments made available through the applets available in Windows.

    I bet you are using a laptop, as I had the same request about a year ago. I
    also found that the light blue text used with so many web pages is difficult
    to read.

    I seem to recall that I hit a wall and ended up tweaking my display
    properties with modest results.

    Control Panel > Display > Settings (tab) > Advanced (button)

    Yes, the bars seem to blend into the page on my laptop. I'll try that. Thanks.
