When link is clicked, page moves down to the targets id

I know that if an elements id is put in a href attribute using a # that the link will move the page down to where that element is. Why does this not happen in this video?

Hi Michael! It's actually jumps to the element, the page is just too short that everything you can see is on one screen. If you could add more content to the page, you could see it in action.

Hope this helps.
