Cubase Pool Window Mischief

I’m running Cubase 7 on windows 7 and cannot for the life of me find a fluid way to drag and drop audio files from the pool into my project window.
The pool window seems to obscure the project window entirely or appear in the upper half and disappear every time I scroll down making it very tricky to drag and drop audio files into tracks. I’m at a loss as it’s such an important feature, at least for me, and it used to be so easy in Pro Tools.
Is there a way to maximise and lock the project window to avoid this kerfuffle?

This gets me every time too! I just grumble and deal with it. It looks like in C8 maybe the pool can be docked, which would help.
