@Foxxee  It doesn't work.  I'm just missing it on youtube.  Everywhere else I have it.  I tried settings, then ease of access, then under simpify and personalize Windwos, click to "off" automatically hide scrollbars in Windows. 

 

Where specifiicaly can I find it?

Years ago I had a problem with you tube.  Somewhere I got the tip to clear out my history & also did a disk cleanup.  Hope this helps.

Hover your mouse at the very top of the page. Does a downward arrow appear?  If so, click the arrow and choose escape from full screen.

 

Or try right clicking and choosing exit full screen.

@songbird  If your issue is only happening in YT,  always seek help at its source at the start.  Go to its website.

I've tried various tips, but the problem is there.  I'm not the only one who uses chrome.  I've read various complaints.  This problem occurred around the same time (March 13, 2021) The scroll bar is fine on Firefox.  But I don't use Firefox.  The problem might be part of extensions.  I could disable extensions, but that would also mean I would lose other scroll bar. I must emphasize that only Yourtube is showing this problem.  I'll wait a while and see if Google (who owns Chrome) will be able to fix it.  I might be, I would have to stop using Chrome in favor of Firefox.  Or another browser.  My husband doesn't know how to fix it.  

 

I think my recent update from Chrome caused this problem

Can't believe it, but my scroll bar is back!  I had tried everything, and it didn't work.  But I must have had another update.  It's back, better then it ever was!  It was the first update that lost it.  Whew!  I'm happy!
