    Según el diccionario de WR:

    to scroll up/down=desplazarse hacia arriba/abajo en el texto

    Is there an easier way to say the same thing? I want to give a command to someone to tell them to 'scroll up' or 'scroll down' with the mouse button.

    Gracias.

    Desplazar el cursor hacia arriba o hacia abajo. That's one way of saying it, including the word cursor.

    Hi,

    And in the same context, how would you say "más arriba" and "más abajo"? Keep scrolling up and keep scrolling down respectively?

    I don't think yo can say more in this context, can you?
    Any shorter way of saying it?

    Thanks.

    I'm afraid this is the simple, easier and most common way to give a command like that

    I thought you could say "bajar" and "subir", like "bájalo" o "súbelo"?

    Desplazarse hacia arriba y hacia abajo is the correct form; however as funfun86 says you could say: vete hacia arriba, vete hacia abajo, bájate, súbete, etc., but I would only use this expressions when I´m talking to the person in front of the computer in very informal situation. These options will not work for any writing instruction, just verbal.
