Blackboard: Bring the Scrollbars Back


Are you using a Mac and noticed that the scrollbars in the Grade Center of Blackboard are no longer there? OSX Lion and Mountain Lion by default don’t show scroll bars unless you scroll the page. Blackboard is aware of the problem and will be addressing this in a future release but for now you will need to change your system preferences.

Follow the directions below to fix this issue:

1. Open the System Preferences window


2. Click on General

3. Under the General Preferences, you will need to change the Show Scroll Bars to Always

This will allow the horizontal scroll bar to appear in the Grade Center.
