Microsoft Word 2000 includes a command to automatically scroll while you read your document. This article describes the AutoScroll command and how to add the command in Word.
The AutoScroll command automatically scrolls your document either down or up at a slow speed while you read or review your document. When you first start the AutoScroll command, Word starts scrolling down your document at a very slow pace.
To control the speed and direction that Word scrolls through your document, move your mouse. In the vertical scroll bar of your document window, large arrow heads indicate the direction of scrolling. The farther away from the center of the vertical scroll bar these arrows are moved, the faster your document scrolls.
To stop the automatic scrolling of your document, either click once with your mouse, or press the ESC key on your keyboard.
NOTE: Automatic scrolling of your document cannot be used when you are editing, typing, or selecting text. If you attempt to make changes in the document, the AutoScroll command is stopped. If you switch away from your active document (for example, use ALT+TAB keys to switch to another application), the AutoScroll command is stopped.
