    {
        HtmlElement elem = webBrowser1.Document.GetElementFromPoint(e.ClientMousePosition);
        elem.ScrollIntoView(true);
    }
}
Private Sub Document_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As HtmlElementEventArgs)
    If (WebBrowser1.Document IsNot Nothing) Then
        Dim Elem As HtmlElement = WebBrowser1.Document.GetElementFromPoint(e.ClientMousePosition)
        Elem.ScrollIntoView(True)
    End If
End Sub
