I cannot see your problem: An old rule-of-thumb is to put 7 +/- 2 elements on
any single screen. These should fit nicely on a 800 x 600 screen...

If you have this problem, chances are good your screens are quite crowded.
Many fields allow to shift the contents out of the viewable part of the
window, but I generally think you should not use techniques like this.
