Staying centered on the cursor in the Timeline.

When I am zoom in, it is very easy to lose the cursor.

What are the commands that would enable me to

zoom in on the cursor in the timeline

and to

center my view on the cursor in the existing position?

Where can they be found in the menu and what are their keyboard shortcuts?

If they are not there, can I add them?

Edit>Preferences>Timeline does not suggest anything.

Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts offers too big of a list of commands to try.

I read it a couple times by now.

I found a vast discussion on different forums about how Premiere Pro is unable to Alt+mouse wheel zoom on the cursor because of the windows bug.

(For some reason, this bug is associated with Windows 10 (compatibility issue), while I have the same problem in Windows 8; maybe it is not a bug at all.)

I believe that those two commands are very basic commands that any virtual manipulation environment has to offer. They are very important in the CAD world.

Thank you.

Happy New Year!

I tried it and it didn't work on Windows 10. When I zoom in using the wheel on the mouse the arow cursor goes off the screen
