The current display is wider than the screen so you can see both ends at the same time.
......and why does it keep changing on me
The only suspicious thing I do is go to View/make text bigger sometimes.
Fortunately I finally discovered that I can drag the display around by clicking the dragging the top bar around so I can exit and scroll by brute force but it gets old very quickly.
That's not so much the display that needs to be adjusted as the application window. The program window is bigger than the display! (Bad program! no biscuit!)
If you can get to the lower left corner of the window, there's a resize control there. It looks like a little set of diagonal lines in the window corner. Mouse down on that and drag toward the upper left to make the window smaller.
If you can't get to that part of the window, there is another way. Next to that red 'go away' button is a yellow 'minimize' button, and a green 'maximize' button. The green button toggles windows between a 'normal' state and a 'largest reasonable size' state. Try clicking that once or twice to see if the window goes back to a sane state.
