You can put right hand thumb on 'Ctrl' then index finger on '-' key.

There are so many ways to skin the view cat in FSX. FSX views are far more flexible and so many more of them.
Holding will move the eyepoint nearer in locked spot view. At any rate it's no biggee to do that everytime you load a plane. By default, you even have two types of spot to work with.
I wonder why in FSX they felt it was no longer important?

Feature-wise I really am still of the FS9 mindset, and unlearning those things I took for granted will be a hard habit to break.
Thank you, -- John I'm not sure how It happened to be but when I plugged my joystick into FSX it automatically assigned the moving of the spot view to the little analogue joystick on the top of my actual joystick.
My problem has been with the slowness of moving the eyepoint.
