Common Software Features, Continued
Scroll bars are areas on the side and bottom of a monitor screen display that
allow you to rapidly scroll or run through documents or software options by
clicking and holding the mouse on the arrow pointing in the direction you
want to travel. Scroll bars appear when there is more information or options
than can be visibly displayed on the monitor.
Inside the scroll bar is a square
or box that indicates approximately where you are in the document.
