I highly recommend this tutorial from altium, it show a few ways to bring a component to the cursor or move the screen to where the component is:
Hope it helps!

The problem is that the mounting hole was created from a Pad. A Pad is not a component and therefore has no reference designator and no way to identify it with the Move Component tool.
I need to either increase my workspace so it includes a region approximately -3000x, -3000y, or find a table file that contains all pads and look for one that is in this region.
Okay. I figured out a way.
For a mounting pad or hole that doesn't have a reference designator use the View/PCB/Hole Size Editor to located the hole. Then edit its properties to locate it within a valid workspace. Once its in the valid workspace it can then be deleted.
I have an odd problem. I built some #2 mounting holes but somehow manage to place one beyond the range of my workspace. I can see the mounting hole in my 3d view as shown below. I estimate it to be somewhere around -3000x, -2000y. But I can't move, delete, or otherwise edit an element in the 3d view.
Shown below is the 2d workspace lower left limit which is -1000x, -1000y. But the mounting hole (pad) that I want to delete is well beyond that to left and down. Is there some way to identify this pad and delete in the database somehow. Or is there a way to extend my works space to left so that I may edit this element?
