How to move scroll bar to the left?

Can the scrollbar, when it appears within the windows 7 system, be moved to the left?
Same question goes for windows xp.
Thanks.

Scrollbar? DO you by chance mean the taskbar on the bottom? Yes it can

I'm not sure there is a way to do that in Windows, but this can be done in Firefox.

I guess it depends on the language settings. If the language is set to read from right to left (Arabic, ...), then the scrollbar should be in the left side.

scroll bar to the left.

Thanks for answering.

The scroll bar in firefox I have allready moved.
A scroll bar (not taskbar) may appear in a folder with many files,
in remove/add programs, etc.
In general all these scroll bars should be moved to the left, or as left
as possible.
