div {

  height: 150px;
  border-style: solid;
  border-width: thin;
  overflow-y: scroll;
  font-family: sans-serif;
  float: left;
  margin-right: 10px;

.blueScroll {
  -ms-scrollbar-highlight-color: aqua;
  -ms-scrollbar-face-color: blue;
  -ms-scrollbar-arrow-color: blue;

  -ms-scrollbar-face-color: red;
  -ms-scrollbar-arrow-color: red;

Remarks

In Windows Internet Explorer 8 the -ms-scrollbar-track-color attribute is an extension to CSS, and can be used as a synonym for scrollbar-track-color in IE8 Standards Mode.

The track is the element of a scroll bar on which the scroll box can slide either up and down or left and right. The scroll box is the rectangular box within a scroll bar that can be moved either up and down or left and right on a track to change the position of the content on the screen.

This property applies to elements that display a scroll bar. CSS enables scrolling on all objects through the overflow property.
