When ever you visit a site or webpage on a desktop that has alot of content to scroll through,the browser will always provide you with the Default Scrollbar on your right hand side to scroll UP & DOWN.

In this simple article I will help you to get rid of the Default boring scrollbar.

Note::Custom scrollbars are not supported in Firefox or IE/Edge.

Custom Scrollbars are supported by Webkit browsers, such as Chrome, Opera and Safari.

These Webkit browsers support the non-standard ::-webkit-scrollbar pseudo element, which allows you to modify the look of the browser's scrollbar.

In case you are reading this article on a desktop or tablet, the live Example is already on your screen.We also use a custom scrollbar on this site.

I also created a simple video to guide you step by step.Watch if you are intrested.

So let's build an awesome custom scrollbar using css.

Sample Markup

Below is a basic html structure with the head section where you always link your external and internal files.

copy
<html>
<head>
	<title>Custom ScrollBar</title>
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="yourfile.css">
</head>

<body>
	<p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmodtempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.</p>
</body>
</html>

NOTE:: you should be having alot of content on the page inorder for it to be scrollable.

ScrollBar styles
copy

/*Scrollbar width*/
::-webkit-scrollbar{
	width:15px;
}

/*Scrollbar Track Area*/
::-webkit-scrollbar-track{
	box-shadow: inset 0 0 5px #00796b;
}

/*Scrollbar Handle*/
::-webkit-scrollbar-thumb{
	background: #00796b;
	border-radius: 15px
}

/*Scrollbar Handle on hover state*/
::-webkit-scrollbar-thumb:hover{
	background: #006d60;
}

/*Scrollbar buttons - Up & Down*/
::-webkit-scrollbar-button{
	background: teal;
}
	

Note::The styles that I have shared above, are the same scrollbar styles that we use on the site. So it's upon you the developer to customize your scrollbar.
