Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the Hypergraph , part of Maya Essentials 1: Interface and Organization.

So I'm going to go into WindowHypergraph Hierarchy, and what this does is it shows…me all the object in the room or all of the nodes in the scene, as you can see it's a…pretty wide window here.…But this is almost like a viewport in the way that you can navigate it.…So if I hold down the Alt key here, I can certainly navigate using my standard navigation controls.…So if I roll my middle mouse button, I can zoom in and out, and so on.…We also have a number of different options here for framing things.…
