Non-standard
This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

Description

The ::-webkit-scrollbar CSS pseudo-element affects the style of the scrollbar of an element.

::-webkit-scrollbar is only available in WebKit-based browsers (e.g., Safari, all browsers on iOS, and others).

CSS Scrollbar Selectors

You can use the following pseudo elements to customize various parts of the scrollbar for webkit browsers:

  • ::-webkit-scrollbar — the entire scrollbar.
  • ::-webkit-scrollbar-button — the buttons on the scrollbar (arrows pointing upwards and downwards).
  • ::-webkit-scrollbar-thumb — the draggable scrolling handle.
  • ::-webkit-scrollbar-track — the track (progress bar) of the scrollbar.
  • ::-webkit-scrollbar-track-piece — the part of the track (progress bar) not covered by the handle.
  • ::-webkit-scrollbar-corner — the bottom corner of the scrollbar, where both horizontal and vertical scrollbars meet.
  • ::-webkit-resizer — the draggable resizing handle that appears at the bottom corner of some elements.

Syntax
