I'm on windows using After Effects CS6.

I'm new to this software and am having a problem scrolling the window vertically or horizontally, Where is the scroll bar?

Alternatively I'm trying to scroll using the mouse wheel, but this seems to be zooming in and out. I read that I can hold the Alt or Ctrl button while moving the wheel, but that doesn't make any difference.

I just want to scroll the panel up and down so I can see what I'm doing.

After tearing my hair out I found the "hand cursor", now I can drag the panel around however I want it :)
