    moving the screen up and down


    on the bottom and right side of the screen there is these lines where you can use your mouse to move your screen.
    but they are so tiny I can barely see them. on windows XP that I had just last month there was a way to enlarge
    them, so there must be a way to do that with windows 8. so can anybody tell me where I find it? these things are way to small for my eye sight.

    its likely cause by the high/higher resolution of new computers ,if you don't want to do a regedit and you don't need such a high resolution you could change that ,thus changing the size of the scrollbar
