How can I increase the size of the Scroll bar

Hi all

I am working on an application for a touch screen terminal. I have placed a
datagrid on the form and the user will select a row on the datagrid. I have
increased the font size on the datagrid to make it easier for the user to
choose one using the touchscreen. How can I increase the size of the
scrollbar to make it easier for the user to scroll the datagrid?

i am using visual studio 2005 .

thanks & regards

I think this is a Windows thing. You will have to go to the "Display
Properties" on Windows, select "Appearance", click on the "Advance" button
and then select "Scrollbar" from the item combobox. Once you do that you can
increase or decrease the size of the scrollbars by changing the Size value.

Open the display properties, go to the Apperance tab and click on
Advanced. Select the Scrollbar setting and change the size.
