A platform that supported multiple products, most of which could be combined in a superset build. Over 30M lines of source code in all. It should have been smaller, but that's the norm for legacy software.
I think my biggest solution used to be somewhere around 20 projects... But 541
I'll raise you another one though, recently had to run a query on a database with around 41,000 tables
My current biggest solution has six projects, but it's part of a larger environment with multiple solutions, which al have around five projects.
It's microservicey, basically one monolith (which also isn't big, with five projects) with some smaller services around it.

It has a form with over 4000 LOC, it calls services, databases, draws stuff, it does everything
Not the largest code file I've ever seen, but probably in my top ten
I can't remember the largest from a corporate that I've been part of, tbh. My current company doesn't have such project-splosion

I was curious who invented this abomination, where it came from
"... In the 2015 version of Microsoft Word for Macs, disappearing scrollbars were introduced. The placement within a document was not longer visible when the mouse was outside the bar area even if the window in question was in focus. The purpose of this change was to conform to Macs’ standard design practices of hiding the scrollbar when it is not immediately needed for information hierarchical purposes. ..." Scrollbar - Wikipedia
