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.

The ::-webkit-scrollbar CSS pseudo-element affects the style of an element's scrollbar when it has scrollable overflow.

Note: ::-webkit-scrollbar is only available in Blink- and WebKit-based browsers (e.g., Chrome, Edge, Opera, Safari, all browsers on iOS, and others). A standardized method of styling scrollbars is available with scrollbar-color and scrollbar-width, but is currently only supported in Firefox.

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 that scroll one line at a time).
  • ::-webkit-scrollbar:horizontal{} — the horizontal scrollbar.
  • ::-webkit-scrollbar-thumb — the draggable scrolling handle.
  • ::-webkit-scrollbar-track — the track (progress bar) of the scrollbar, where there is a gray bar on top of a white bar.
  • ::-webkit-scrollbar-track-piece — the part of the track (progress bar) not covered by the handle.
  • ::-webkit-scrollbar:vertical{} — the vertical scrollbar.
  • ::-webkit-scrollbar-corner — the bottom corner of the scrollbar, where both horizontal and vertical scrollbars meet. This is often the bottom-right corner of the browser window.
  • ::-webkit-resizer — the draggable resizing handle that appears at the bottom corner of some elements.
