Is there a feature on Dreamweaver which allows me to streamline the appearance of a clumsy looking scroll bar inside a page? I am not talking about the scrolls on the edge of a webpage but those within the page.

Hi thenameofthecatisnotknown,

you could use some CSS to style them:
» How To Create a Custom Scrollbar

» CSS3 - Webkit - Vertical Scrollbars | CSSDeck

» scrollbar | CSS-Tricks

Note: Firefox and IE/Edge won't like them.

Best Regards,
Maurice

No.  Scrollbar appearance varies by the browser you use.  In general, extra scrollbars are not mobile friendly and should be avoided.   Removing the height properties from your CSS code will take away the clumsy extra scrollbars.

IMO, styling scrollbars with CSS is right up there with spitting into the wind -- an unproductive endeavor.

I dont think there is any place for scrollbars in the professional developers world these day. Show/hide text has taken its place using javascript or css which looks less obtrusive in my opinion, so I'll leave the amatuers to roll out the scroll bars if thats what they want to do.

Nancy, I agree with you! However, the OP wanted to style them (?), so I gave him/her ideas on how-to
