Edit your gtk2 theme as followed,

in admin' mode, modify this file with your favorite text-editor /usr/share/themes/elementary/gtk-2.0/gtkrc

and raise value of :

GtkScrollbar ::slider-width

Beware it will also modify size of scrolling bars in any gtk2 apps, like Firefox, Thunderbird or LibreOffice. 12 is a nice value on my big screen.
