Scroll (from mouse button) in a desktop application

Author: ranete.raul@yahoo.com (Raul)

Hy everybody,   Can the scroll button form the mouse be used in a desktop application with several contained components? The issue is that when i have a contained window and the screen has a small resolution the scroll bar always sits at the end of the window, making it not visible, and hence not usable, unless i scroll horizontally to the end of the window making de UX very uncomfortable. Is there a solution to this?
