Missing scroll bar IE8 on XP SP3; 4:3 LCD monitor; 1024x768 resolution setting
Sometime, in the past week or so, the horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of the IE8 viewing window disappeared. I did not notice it when it happened. Thus, I do not know what I or my PC were doing at the time. No error messages have been observed recently. Event viewer shows nothing (naturally). Possibly, something could have gotten bollixed up via an IE8 hang and subsequent termination via Task Manager.
I have Googled with no success. The only fix found, to use the Reset in Tools/Options, is not an option for me. With IE8 functioning normally otherwise, the price of a Reset is too high for such a minor problem. This is only a minor issue on websites with content extending past the RH edge of the monitor screen.
I have searched the WS Forum also with no success. Apparently it has not been addressed before.
Thoughts or suggestions, anyone?
I presume one solution would be to replace my 4:3 monitor with a 16:9 monitor.
