A slider, also known as track bar in Microsoft literature, is an object in a GUI with which a user may set a value by moving an indicator, usually in a horizontal fashion. In some cases the user may also click on a point on the slider to change the setting. It is different from a Scrollbar in that it is typically used to adjust a value without changing the format of the display or the other information on the screen.
In the Microsoft Windows series of operating systems, sliders first appeared in Windows 95. Previous versions of Windows, up to and including Windows 3.x, used scrollbars for this purpose.
