Every Windows program has scroll bars. They enhance viewing lengthy lists of files, documents and workbooks. If you have created a very short document, the use of scroll bars is unnecessary. Scroll bars are located in the lower edge and right side for the screen.

Scroll bars move the viewing area in any of the following ways:
u Click on the arrows at either end of a bar. In the example below you are at the beginning of the document, so only the lower arrow is active.
vClick and drag the scroll button. In long Word documents, a dialogue box with the page numbers appears for easier navigation.
wClick on the actual bar and the view will change with one click.

The Horizontal Bar (bottom) moves the viewing page crosswise. If the document uses a landscape layout instead of portrait, you can scroll to either side to view all the contents.

When navigating via scroll bars the cursor to insert text does not change locations until you click in a document or select a file.

If no scroll bars appear on the screen, try maximizing the window. (See the Maximize section for details.) You can also click on an active window's title bar to move it. Sometimes scroll bar become hidden behind window borders.
