    So, About the scroll bar...


    Yeah, title says it all. But really, I think they should do something about the look and feel of the scroll bar on the metro start menu. What do you think they should do?

    Because I would enjoy it a lot more if it were just a single white bar with no background that only appears when you hover over it. What would you guys have it be?

    But after being immersed in the metro design, I'd like to see it a bit differently. Microsoft's Mouse and Keyboard control panel has this scroll bar that is real neat. A simple black bar with a thin black line down the middle of it to show the scroll length. Although, I'd like it to be colored...
