Just set the scrollbars property of your textbox, and multiline to true

or use a richtextbox and set the scrollbars property to both, the difference between this and the textbox is in the textbox the scrollbars are fixed where as in the richtextbox they are dynamic

Instead of:

    TextBox1.Text = TextBox1.Text & "more text" & vbCrLf

Use:

    TextBox1.AppendText("more text" & vbCrLf)

like textbox1.ScrollToCaret
