RantWindows & hide scrollbar: Why? Pin

I have a new laptop and I decided to go ahead and try the built-in email client that is installed on Win10. -- Aside: Notice that I don't even know the name of this app? Microsoft isn't very good at naming stuff.

Anyways, I connected to my email server and email arrived in my inbox but there was no way to scroll through them.
Oh..........isn't that quaint? The scrollbar appears when you hover over that area. That's a ingenious idea.

It's so I have more space. But I have plenty of space so I search and learn how to make Scrollbars always appear. that's a nice waste of time.

But, there is a bug too. If I now go to the scrollbar, the cursor always shows up as a I bar instead of an arrow as it should. Oy! I made a video of this and posted it to youtube so you can see it in action[^].

So here is my big question. When would any user want to have to hover over the scrollbar so it can appear (thus the user is sitting and waiting for the scrollbar to appear)?

Oh, you say, on pad type of devices the screens are smaller so this enables the user to see 2 more characters than they would otherwise be able to see and then they can hover and see the scrollbar.
Except pads usually don't offer a hover-type of functionality do they? Well maybe Surface does since you use a mouse with it. But for most there would be no cursor (since a finger is used as the pointer) and no hover ability so it just doesn't make sense to me.
