Does the "Preferred Location" option include "In the trunk" so kidnap victims can be fed?

While I fully appreciate the fact that not everyone is a gear-head...for most people a car represents a major investment, even if you're just leasing. If you've made such a major investment and can't even name the make and model of your own car...then yeah, as far as I'm concerned, you can go without pizza.
But then, this is Domino's we're talking about. Not much of a punishment.
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.
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.
Although I feel your pain, this isn't something that's new or something that's specific for this app.
Windows 10 has this in the start menu, it's in pretty much every Windows 10 setting screen and some other apps as well I think.
And I think Windows 8 had this as well.
Not to mention pretty much every app on your phone.
My point is, great that you've been able to avoid it for the past 10 years or so, but you better get used to it
