The Window.scroll() method scrolls the window to a particular place in the document.

Syntax

window.scroll(x-coord, y-coord)
window.scroll(options)

Parameters

  • x-coord is the pixel along the horizontal axis of the document that you want displayed in the upper left.
  • y-coord is the pixel along the vertical axis of the document that you want displayed in the upper left.

Examples

<!-- put the 100th vertical pixel at the top of the window -->

<button onclick="scroll(0, 100);">click to scroll down 100 pixels</button>

Using options:

window.scroll({
  top: 100,
  left: 100,
  behavior: 'smooth'
});

Notes

Window.scrollTo() is effectively the same as this method. For relative scrolling, see Window.scrollBy(), Window.scrollByLines(), and Window.scrollByPages().

For scrolling elements, see Element.scrollTop and Element.scrollLeft.
