You can customize your workspace as desired using the available controls. You can also optimize the layout panel as per the specific tasks that you intend to perform.

If you want to adjust the size of your video clip, Anchor Point is exactly what you are looking for.

On the Controls panel, you can click on "Anchor Point", the video clip on Viewer will be framed by several dots, you can drag any one of them to scale the video clip optionally.

Other than that, on the Layout panel, there are 4 boxes on the right: X, Y, Width, Height. X and Y boxes stand for the horizontal and vertical axis, and the Width and Height values stand for the pixels of the size.

And you can see a dotted line square below the Mirror and Rotate icons where you can select one of the dots to lock the value of X, Y, Width or Height of the video clip, then adjust the size of the video clip or change its position on Viewer.

The default link icon on the right means that the width and height of the clip can be scaled together, you can unlink them by clicking the icon.
