I have scrolls, but can't figure out how to use them.

When I equip them in my inventory an arrow appears, however it is not assigned to a hand and it doesn't work when I press the shout button.

My example is on PC, but it would be useful to know for all platforms.

Just select it, it should show up in one of your hand (you don't actually see a scroll, but the spell animation). Just cast it then like a natural spell.

I take it a scroll is single use then? – Doozer Blake Nov 17 '11 at 1:05
@Doozer Exactly so. – SevenSidedDie Nov 17 '11 at 3:22

I used one fighting a dragon and it does show up in your hand. When you cast it you must hold down the trigger a few seconds until the discoloration goes away.
