I work on a 15' laptop and the scrollbar width takes a lot of space when working on multiple windows. Being able to hide the scrollbar or changing the width to a minimal value would help me a lot.

I've gone through every setting in User Preferences to search for a solution but couldn't find a way. Thank you!

One way to scale scrollbars is... to scale everything: since 2.79, you can scale the UI through a global factor (default to 1). This is useful on hidpi displays, but it could help you too:

by default, the UI as 1.0 scaling factor:

but you can scale it down enough to get all the UI (and also scrollbars) slimmer:

of course now everything is too small, but in Blender you can also scale each area/panel (CTRLMMB drag): of course par of the UI (menu and icons) cannot be resized in this way, but you can at least find a compromise...
