I just recently noticed this, all my scroll bars look like this, see pic, in all my desktop programs. This is Windows 8 pro x64.2012-11-22_093644.png

It looks like a typical Windows 8 style scrollbar to me.

In every other version of Windows you can alter the width of the scrollbar, usually in some sort of advanced settings of your style/theme. I've not used Windows 8 so they could have omitted that feature, but if your scrollbars are changing widths it's likely there is still an option there.
