Customize scrollbar using simple CSS

Custom scrollbar

Customize CSS scrollbar

Are you bored of default Scrollbar of the browser, if yes, then get ready to customize it as per your requirement. We will be using simple CSS codes to create the scrollbar.

A nice and quick experiment by Tim Holman. He created 14 vertical scrollbars using only CSS & HTML that work only in WebKit browsers like Google Chrome. No javascript or jquery code is required to create this scrollbar.

The different styling is achieved using webkit-only pseudo properties:

  • -webkit-scrollbar-track: This styles the main track of the scollbar.
  • -webkit-scrollbar: It is the main scrollbar container.
  • -webkit-scrollbar-thumb: This styles the thumb of the scrollbar.

One Sample code

-webkit-box-shadow: inset 0 0 6px rgba(0,0,0,0.3);
border-radius: 10px;
background-color: #F5F5F5;
width: 12px;
background-color: #F5F5F5;
border-radius: 10px;
-webkit-box-shadow: inset 0 0 6px rgba(0,0,0,.3);
background-color: #555;

Hint: Add class="scrollbar" to Parent div and add id="style-1"
