<interface> (From a scroll of paper) To change the portion of a document displayed in a window or on a VDU screen. In a graphical user interface, scrolling is usually controlled by the user via scroll bars, whereas on a VDU the text scrolls up automatically as lines of data are output at the bottom of the screen.
