You might be affected by the following limitations when using IBM Rational ClearQuest with Internet Explorer 10 for the desktop .
Some horizontal and vertical scroll bars do not function properly on ClearQuest version 184.108.40.206 and later.
Observed behavior: The scroll bar does not move when the user attempts to click and drag the scroll bar.
Workaround: Only the ability to click and drag appears to be affected. The remaining scrolling action options appear to work as expected. For example, clicking in the area above or below the scroll bar, clicking the scroll bar arrows, or pressing the appropriate arrow keys on the keyboard all move the scroll bar as expected. Depending on the capabilities of your mouse and the type of scroll bar, the following actions might also work: pressing PAGE UP or PAGE DOWN on the keyboard, using the scroll wheel on the mouse, or clicking the middle mouse button and dragging.
