I can not seem to get this to work. I am using Selenium (c#) version 3.141.0.

Also i has to make a change to line one of your code, this may be the cause of the issue:

var element = Driver.FindElement(By.XPath("//*[@id="slide-out"]/ul/div[2]/div"));

Should this still work?

For C# try this

        public void ScrollToId(string id)
            this.Driver.ExecuteJavascript($"document.getElementById('{id}').scrollIntoView({{behavior: 'smooth', block: 'center'}});");
        public static object ExecuteJavascript(this IWebDriver driver, string script)
            return ((IJavaScriptExecutor)driver).ExecuteScript(script);
