Making a div vertically scrollable is easy by using the CSS overflow property. There are different values in the overflow property. We can use that property for getting a scroll bar on a web page. The below-mentioned examples are the ways to set a vertical scroll bar on a web page.

Example 1: In this example, we have set the overflow-x: hidden; and overflow-y: auto; which will automatically hide the horizontal scroll bar and present only the vertical scrollbar.

<!DOCTYPE html>

<head>
    <style>
        h1 {

        }
 
        div.scroll {
            margin: 4px, 4px;
            padding: 4px;
            background-color: green;
            width: 500px;
            height: 110px;
            overflow-x: hidden;
            overflow-y: auto;
            text-align: justify;
        }
    </style>
</head>
