When using client-side routing using Vue Router we may want to scroll to top when navigating to a new route or preserve the scrolling position of history entries.

Vue Router allows us to completely customize the scroll behavior on route navigation.

This feature only works if the browser supports history.pushState.

When creating the router instance, we can provide the scrollBehavior function:

const router = new VueRouter({
  routes: [...],
  scrollBehavior (to, from, savedPosition) {
    return { x: 0, y: 0 }

The following code scrolls to the top of the page for all route navigations:

scrollBehavior (to, from, savedPosition) {
  return { x: 0, y: 0 }

To achieve a native-like behavior when navigating with back/forward buttons we can return savedPosition:

scrollBehavior (to, from, savedPosition) {
  if (savedPosition) {
    return savedPosition
  } else {
    return { x: 0, y: 0 }
