Microsoft Word not displaying scroll bar

For some time now, the scroll bar on my Word documents has gone missing and the only way I can move my text up and down is by use of the arrows on the keyboard.

It’s not the end of the world, but it would be nice to have them back. None of the fixes I’ve read about seem to work.

Does anyone have any ideas what might have gone wrong and could tell me whether there is an easy way to resolve this? Everything seems ok on the Settings.

Have you tried this?

Show scroll bars in Word and Excel for Windows

Scroll bars might be manually hidden. You can change this setting to show the scroll bars instead.

Click File > Options.

On the Advanced tab, scroll to the Display section.

Select Show horizontal scroll bar and Show vertical scroll bar, and then click OK.

Toggle automatic hiding of scroll bars in Windows 10

Scroll bars might be set to automatically hide themselves. You can turn this setting off.

Click Start > Settings.

Under Windows Settings, scroll down, and then click Ease of Access > Display.

Scroll down, and then set Automatically hide scroll bars in Windows to Off.

Restore the app window

If showing and toggling scroll bars did not work to show the scroll bars, try resizing the app window.

Right-click the title bar of the app window, and then click Maximize.

Right-click the title bar again, and then click Restore.

Re: Microsoft Word not displaying scroll bar

Well, I had tried everything before, except the Ďmaximiseí bit. So tried that and hey presto, the scroll bar came back, but it only appeared for a few seconds before disappearing again!

Now, if I take the cursor up to the title section of the screen and then lower it to the document, the scroll bar appears again, but only temporarily. I get the same by taking the cursor over to where the scroll bar should be.

I can make do with that, so thanks Hugh for that advice!
