UX Glossary


The fold is defined as the lowest point where a Web page is no longer visible on a computer monitor or screen. Where on a Web page the fold falls is a function of the monitor size, the screen resolution, and the font size selection. The information that is visible when a Web page first loads is considered to be 'above the fold.' Those regions of the same Web page that are visible only by scrolling are considered to be 'below the fold'.
