SharePoint 2010 – 2 simple steps to fixing scrollbar issue in Google Chrome

The most common problem you will find using SharePoint 2010 in Google Chrome is the missing scrollbar. This issue can be easily solved by replacing 1 line of code. Yes, ONE line.

Step 1

In the Master page, look for this:

<body scroll=”no” onload=”javascript:_spBodyOnLoadWrapper();”>

and replace with this:

<body scroll=”no”>

<script type=”text/javascript”>$(document).ready(function() {if (typeof(_spBodyOnLoadWrapper) != ‘undefined’) {_spBodyOnLoadWrapper();} });</script>

Step 2

THAT’S IT. Hopefully the scrollbar should appear in Google Chrome.

You can find dozens of other solutions online, but I found that this one is easy to integrate, and doesn’t cause any other known issues.

If the problem still persists, I would suggest to try the following solution: Kyle Schaeffer: SHAREPOINT 2010 SCROLLING
