    Good: You can now shrink an existing partition in disk management.

    Bad: In event viewer I can't grab the scroll thumb with the mouse and
    scroll the contents of the window.

    But only until you meet the first immovable file. And you can't move the
    created space in order to expand a partition to the right of the space...

    I click in the window, then use my mouse wheel. It's about as effective.

    Not even close to being as effective. With mouse wheel it would take
    around a minute to scroll all the way through... grabbing the scroll
    thumb, 1 - 2 seconds.

    Thanks, never heard it called a thumb before.

    You can click in the area above or below the "thumb" and scroll pretty
    rapidly.

    OK that's almost as fast but not nearly as smooth and I can't control
    precisely the position of the thumb, not to mention that to change
    direction I have to move the mouse all the way to the opposite end.
    Event Viewer is one place where I really need to grab the thumb to
    quickly and smoothly locate the warnings and errors in both directions.

    Another alternative is to use Eventviewer's Filter command to select
    just what you want to see. Go to the View menu, select Filter, then
    deselect everything except Warnings and Errors. The view reverts back
    to 'everything' when you close and re-open Eventviewer, or you can
    simply select All Records from the View menu.

    I was assuming that you would actually want to see the contents, not just go
    from top to bottom as fast as possible.
