KDE Bug 23491: customizable scrollbar width by tc on April 1st 2001
"I'd like to be able to customize the width of scrollbars. As I get older I want bigger fonts and widgets that are easier to see and manipulate. Sometimes it seems like these scrollbars are so narrow I have to be more exact with mouse placement than I'd like."

KDE Bug 159055: Resizable scroll bar width by Lou Alfonso on March 10th 2008
"Often times when I goto grab the scrollbar the mouse grabs the edge of the app and I end up resizing it instead. If I could have a preference for that then I could make it as wide as I want. It takes way too much effort to guide the mouse and grab a very narrow piece. (...)"

GNOME Bug 781807: Where is the scroll bar? by Chuck Pergiel on April 27th 2017

Scroll Bar Width is Too Narrow - Uneasily Adjustable

No Option to Increase default Scrollbar Width

How do I make the scrollbars wider?
"I was so frustrated with the annoying super-narrow scrollbars, that I almost switched back to Windows over this issue. The Ubuntu designers really screwed this up. Usable scrollbars are kind of important. Making them super narrow to take up less space was not a good idea. They need to be large so they're easy to click on! Ubuntu, like Microsoft, is trying so hard to make things look good on Mobile that they just end up ruining things for non-mobile users." Clay Ferguson
I agree with you 100%. These narrow scrollbars are so terrible. I just posted a question about how to get the up/down arrows back too. I switched to Ubuntu about 6 months ago and I'm really happy with it, but this scrollbar thing could make me move back to windows. Why would scrollbars be so narrow that the mouse moves past them and turns into a window resize cursor because the scrollbar doesn't activate? It's absolutely terrible. Also, why would I want the scroll bar to be so narrow and have to wait 1 second for it to activate so I can click it. Really bad ideas. raddevus

How do I get a bigger static scrollbar (aka normal scrollbar)?
"the scrollbar is still a razor thin line that becomes a less razor thin scrollbar, but still thin scrollbar, when the mouse hovers. (...)

GREAT QUESTION... Athena toolkit had this working in like X11R1 in 1988. 32 years later scrollbars are far far harder to use... - Swiss Frank Jan 12, 2020 at 14:42(...)
Seriously 100%. This is the same in Fedora+Cinnamon as well. The scroll bars are way too tiny. What in the world were people thinking not having an easy option to make them bigger. - mrbean"
