Help with viewing TOP command


When viewing top, if there are more processes running that what fits on my screen, how do I scroll further down to see the other ones?

I saw the related links at the bottom of this page (this one), and it recommends running top in batch mode and saving the output to file.
Code:
top -b -n1 > top.log
Alternate suggestions are available there, if this solution is not good enough.

This outputting to a text file worked well, thanks.
