    It is both the horizontal and vertical scroll bars at the bottom and far right of the screen in Microsoft Edge.

    I don't see anything specific to Edge but I found this for Windows 8, maybe it will work in 10???

    It works. But be careful, get it too wide and things get weird. Too narrow and you'll never find it!

    I tried your suggestion, rebooted, and it worked for some applications but not Edge which seems strange.

    Windows 10 Pro (unfortunately)

    Works for me to get rid of the monstrous font in Excel 2010 sheet tabs. If you're interested the (more or less) exact widths in Win 7 were ScrollHeight -150 and ScrollWidth -150.Also used Winareo Tweaker to get rid of the giant title bars. I think MS assumes we have infinite screen real estate.
