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.

This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes. Avoid using it, and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

Formal syntax


<color> = <rgb()> | <rgba()> | <hsl()> | <hsla()> | <hex-color> | <named-color> | currentcolor | <deprecated-system-color>

<rgb()> = rgb( <percentage>{3} [ / <alpha-value> ]? ) | rgb( <number>{3} [ / <alpha-value> ]? ) | rgb( <percentage>#{3} , <alpha-value>? ) | rgb( <number>#{3} , <alpha-value>? )
<rgba()> = rgba( <percentage>{3} [ / <alpha-value> ]? ) | rgba( <number>{3} [ / <alpha-value> ]? ) | rgba( <percentage>#{3} , <alpha-value>? ) | rgba( <number>#{3} , <alpha-value>? )
<hsl()> = hsl( <hue> <percentage> <percentage> [ / <alpha-value> ]? ) | hsl( <hue>, <percentage>, <percentage>, <alpha-value>? )
<hsla()> = hsla( <hue> <percentage> <percentage> [ / <alpha-value> ]? ) | hsla( <hue>, <percentage>, <percentage>, <alpha-value>? )

<alpha-value> = <number> | <percentage>
<hue> = <number> | <angle>


The following example shows how to use -ms-scrollbar-arrow-color and -ms-scrollbar-face-color to display a scroll bar with a blue scroll box and arrows, and a scroll bar with a green scroll box and arrows.

div {
  width: 150px;
  height: 150px;
  overflow-y: scroll;
  border-style: solid;
  border-width: thin;
  font-family: sans-serif;
  float: left;
  margin-right: 10px;
.blueScrollBox {
  scrollbar-face-color: blue;
  scrollbar-arrow-color: blue;
.greenScrollBox {
  scrollbar-face-color: green;
  scrollbar-arrow-color: green;
  <div class="blueScrollBox">
    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat.
  <div class="greenScrollBox">
    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat.

In Windows Internet Explorer 8, the -ms-scrollbar-arrow-color property is an extension to CSS, and can be used as a synonym for scrollbar-arrow-color in IE8 Standards Mode.

The scroll arrows, located at each end of a scroll bar, are the square buttons containing the arrows that move the content on the screen in small increments, either up and down or left and right.

This property applies to elements that display a scroll bar. CSS enables scrolling on all objects through the overflow property.
