Microsoft did a great disservice to their customers by changing the
name of common video functions/tools that are common in the industry
making those wishing to help need to learn Microsoft "speak" which
often is different or totally lacking.
Look closely at the Movie Maker timeline. At the top of the track you
should see the timeline calibrated in minutes/seconds with a green
square sitting on top with a vertical line extending down over the
timeline. If you click on this little square and hold down your left
mouse you should be able to drag back and forth quickly anywhere on
the timeline. This button is called a scrubber or the scrubber bar. It
should be in sync with what shows in the preview window. Do NOT use
the play button in the preview window for anything but test playing
the project. Instead learn to use the scrubber to move quickly back
and forth anywhere on the timeline.
