Go to the Classic view of Control Panel...click on Mouse...click on Device Settings...click on the Settings button..it will bring up a new window about Synaptics....click on Virtual Scrolling. Un-click the horizontal and vertical scrolling button and click Apply down at the bottom and it is disabled. YAY!

I hear 'auto-scroll' is a feature by default. I'm not sure what kind of Toshiba you have, but from my experience they can be touchy. If you don't use an external mouse (which I suggest a wireless usb ,you can usually find them on sale or at least pretty reasonable) you might try going into control panel, then printers and faxes folder, clicking on the mouse icon or properties, from there you should be able to disable auto-scroll completely or at least turn down the sensitivity. If all else fails , the Fn + the f9 key I think enables/disables the touch-pad for a external mouse. If this helps, please rate me, thanks.Good luck. :)

How do I enable my scroll bar on the keypad??


I trust that you understand that scroll bars are only visible if more than 1 page is to be displayed. If you have magnified a particular page, the scroll bar may be outside the view of the screen - on the right side, Scroll to the left until you see the right border.
Perhaps you are referring to the touchpad.
The scroll feature on the touch pad is not visible. You enable the touchpad by tapping twice on the upper left corner of the touchpad. A lite will appear in that corner when the touchpad is ON.
Then the scrolling feature is enabled on the right side of the touchpad. Simply run your finger up and down the right side of the touchpad. For more information, refer to the User Guide here:

Unlock scroll key


Toshiba laptop computers use multi-function touchpads, which often have software features added to the touchpad manufacturer's basic package. If your Toshiba laptop's touchpad won't scroll but its other functions are working, you may simply need to adjust your settings. If the problem occurs suddenly, try restarting your computer before resorting to other methods. Sometimes the addition of new software or other features can interfere temporarily with the touchpad driver, interrupting the scrolling feature. If a simple restart does not restore your touchpad's scrolling feature, check its properties through the control panel. The exact options for doing so will vary by laptop model and operating system.

Click "Start," then "Control Panel." Navigate to "Mouse," which may be under "Hardware and sound" or a similar category, depending on your operating system. Select the "Touchpad" tab in the "Mouse" window. This tab will also list the touchpad manufacturer, most often Synaptics on Toshiba computers. If you have more than one built-in pointing device, as is the case with the touchscreen model Toshiba Portege series, choose the "Hardware" tab and select your touchpad, then click "Settings." Select "Properties," "Settings," "Advanced" or the similar option on your system. Click the box next to "Enable scrolling" if this option is available. For Synaptics touchpads, you may have a list of options; click the arrow to the right of "Scrolling" to open the scrolling list and select one-finger or two-finger scrolling to access the specific features. Click to enable any scrolling features you desire, then select "Adjust scrolling region" or the similar option, if available. Drag the scrolling region to cover a larger portion of the touchpad if you want to ensure you can scroll easily. Click "Ok" to apply any changes and close the options windows. Keep clicking "Ok" until all of the windows with this option are closed. Restart your computer if prompted. Your scrolling feature should be enabled.

Scroll bar


Most modern laptops with touchpads offer vertical scrolling, horizontal scrolling or both. These features are located along the right-hand and bottom edges of the touchpad, respectively, and are activated when you swipe your finger along the touchpad edge. Scrolling functionality is nearly always enabled by default, but some users find the feature an annoyance and elect to turn it off. In most cases you can simply turn the feature back on using the Windows Control Panel.

Click the Windows Start button, select "Settings," and then click "Control Panel." Double-click the icon labeled "Mouse." Select the Touchpad properties tab. The labeling of this tab varies, depending on your computer manufacturer, operating system version and the device drivers installed on your machine. Common labels include "Touch Pad," "Device Settings" and "Dell Touchpad." If you do not see this option, you may not be able to turn on scrolling for your laptop; skip the remaining steps and refer to the "Warnings" section below. Click the "Settings" button within the Touchpad Properties menu and look for the section labeled "Scrolling Settings" or similar. Enable scrolling within this section and define other scroll settings, such as scroll zone width and scrolling speed. Click "OK" to confirm your changes, and then close the Control Panel windows opened in the previous steps. The scrollbar on your laptop is now enabled.
Scroll Is Not Working With Windows 7 b> Certain computer touchpads have a vertical section on the pad itself that is used to scroll through the page or program window that you are currently viewing on your computer. If the scroll functionality suddenly stops working but the actual touchpad is still fine, this means that the part of the software for the device that controls the ability to use the scroll has been disabled. You can enable it again in the Control Panel.
Click "Start." Click "Control Panel." Click "Mouse." Select the "Enable Scroll" option (or whatever similarly named option is available on your specific model of laptop computer). Click "Apply." The scroll bar on your touchpad will now work again.

The "Touchpad is very sensitive; if you look while scrolling, the "scroll-bar" will turn (Blue), click on the ("scroll-bar"), until it turn "Gray." Note: "You ca use the Pointer Device / Touchpad without using the Scroll-bar, basically anywhere on the screen; ("bottom scroll-pad" = left to right"), and ("right -side edge scroll-pad = up & down").

Scoll bar action on touchpad works outside the scroll area


Seems like the synaptic touch pad has lost its configuration or got a little whacky.
Go to the control panel, and find the program for the touch pad.
There, try to redefine the areas for the scroll bar action.
