This is, apparently, an IE10+ only property (not sure on the caniuse views on browser specific properties)


-ms-overflow-style: auto | none | scrollbar | -ms-autohiding-scrollbar

Property values
auto (default value):

  • in IE this cause the scrollbars to be present and take up space in the DOM
  • Windows UI this enforces the same rules has -ms-autohiding-scrollbar


  • element does not display scrollbars or panning indicators
  • elements can still be scrolled via touch panning, keyboard, or mouse wheel. (unlike overflow: hidden;)


  • element displays a classic scrollbar-type control when its content overflows.


  • element displays auto-hiding scrollbars during mouse interactions and panning indicators during touch and keyboard interactions.
  • Auto-hiding scrollbars overlay content, and therefore do not require extra layout space.
