Scrollen Sie durch die Liste links


Explanation:
"Scrollen"
That's what every computer user says here in Germany.
Microsoft often prefer "führen Sie einen Bildlauf durch" but that's a bit clumsy, isn't it?
Corel prefer "Rollen" but it sounds strange.

Explanation:
natürlich kann man heutzutage auch das englische Wort "scrollen" benutzen, aber "durch etwas scrollen" ist bestimmt nicht mehr grammatikalisch richtig. Eigentlich blättert man mithilfe des Rollbalkens durch eine solche Liste. Und daher kommt auch das "durch".
