Well in the olden days before the era of the mouse and the keyboard people had been using navigation keys to scroll through the screen. So when the scroll lock is on, you can use your navigation key to scroll else it can be used to move the cursor.

Still, in present date some applications like Excel uses this functionality other than this to be short, we can say that it is a free key that can be remapped to do some other mini-tasks.
