How to Fix Google Chrome Double Scroll Bar Bug/Problem
Have you updated your Google Chrome browser only to get a double scroll bar on the right(see pic above) most of the time when browsing the web? This started happening to me a few weeks ago but I have only found the fix to this problem only now. I found the fix on youtube and you can watch it below:
I guess this happens when we browse a site that uses Flash. It’s also actually not a double scroll bar problem but what we are actually seeing is the scroll bar of the the other tab we are browsing. The current tab window we are in has its width shortened and thus gives us the illusion that we are seeing 2 scroll bars because we are able to see the scroll bar of the other tab behind our current tab.
If you’d rather read the solution, then you can follow my instructions per the video’s advice:
- Type “chrome://plugins” into your URL address bar without the double quotes.
- Under Flash, look for the Shockwave Flash plugin which uses the pepflashplayer.dll file. (See in red below)
- Disable that plugin. (See in green below)
Once disabled, this should fix the problem! If not, then you may leave a message below and I could help you find the right solution for you.
