Can't Stop Hovering

Edge side scroll bar
I wonder how many users actually find the thin scrollbar at the side easier to use than the normal wider, fixed width type? Personally, I find it fiddly and irritating. Yes, I could use the older browser or a different brand, but this feature is hardly a accessibility advantage, is it. Personally, if I was designing the feature, I would retain the tried and trusted wider type and make it semi-transparent. The user would always be able to see the scrollbar, access it quickly and easily and still see anything under it. Perhaps MS should offer the option of 'keep it thick' by default and see how many users change it to 'thin but expanding' as it is now.
How about creating audio instruction books/guidelines?
I am using the new build of Windows 10 with really good assistive technologies.

The new Narrator is great; surely we can improve on this by offering an audio clip. Perhaps something to consider for future builds. Many thanks.

"Background is currently turned off by Ease of Access settings" I have looked at ALL suggestions as to how to fix this but NO ONE has given an answer that WORKS. All that happens is that the problem gets worse. e.g. the colours set up are either too bright of at variance to each other that it is impossible to read.
