Default Bad view when using Find and Find & Replace - Word places found string on top line

In Word 2007 (and I think earlier versions, too), when I use Find (or Find & Replace), the 'found' string (e.g., the found word) is often shown at the very top of the screen (i.e., the top line displayed). This typically makes it very hard to see the context, and I have to keep switching from the Find dialogue box in order to scroll up and see the context of the found word. This obiously 'kills' the convenience of using 'F' to "find next" (and 'R' to "replace").
Is there any way to make Word show at least one line above and one line below the found string?
