Accessibility settings within Teams - Scrollbar
A colleague has come to me with this issue... MS, please help her:
Teams has an auto-hide functionality. I'm trying to turn that off. I want the scrollbar to be visible at all times, even when the app is still visible but I'm in a different app. Compare Outlook, which always shows the scrollbar even when I'm in Teams or any other application has focus.
In addition, the scrollbar needs to be wider. In both cases, this is an accessibility issue, especially since Teams does not respect the OS setting to keep scrollbars visible.
Finally, the third issue is both the size of the scrollbar "line" and the contrast. This control should have more contrast than it has (currently it is 1.6:1) and it is so thin it may be invisible for some users. When I hover over the scrollbar it gets approximately twice as wide, but it still has barely any contrast.

I agree. The new problem of scroll bar inaccessibility in Windows is worrying me very much, hence my feedback:

I agree, having to keep a mouse pointer over the scroll bar to have it "appear" is extremely frustrating. I would love to have the scrollbar stay put and visible.
