Page Up / Page Down

Noobie so probably stupid question, but what is the Page Up / Page Down shortcut for Mac OsX and applications? I tried ctrl+arrows, alt+arrows, cmd+arrows, nothing seems to work :/

Control + "Up" arrow

You can probably figure out Page Down.

I thought so, but it doesn't seem to work on my MBP (for example in Firefox for going quickly up/down in websites)

Oh, a MBP. They still have the Function key (fn) in the lower left corner, don't they?

fn + "Up" arrow = page up

I assume you're using a notebook.
fn + arrows.

In text editors, if you want the cursor to follow the page up/down (like in Windows) you need to press opt+fn+arrows.

Unless you're using Leopard which uses control + arrow to switch spaces.

Mac OS X keyboard shortcuts - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1343

Quote:
Control-V Move down one page
Any reason why there is no similar shortcut for page up?

Any reason why fn shortcuts aren't listed on Mac support page?

(weird)

Too Weird! page up/page down

I have a macbook pro-several years old. I read this thread and most all these don't work on mine?!?! I want to go to bottom of all text (like on Windows Page up/down keys...BOOO!)
Mine works with command and the down arrow.
For 'dummies' like me: that would be the 'command' key on either side of the space bar and the arrow key in the right hand lower corner of keyboard, the arrow pointing up or down (not left or right).
There are some other condensed helpful tips at www.danrodney.com.
Now for Iapino-who said you tried cmd+arrows---I don't know why it didn't work for you.
I have the new Mountain Lion OSX 10.8. This seems crazy to me-especially for Apple-that it would work differently for everyone. So come on you Mac Wizards--don't look down on us 'noobies' like we be 'gone!'

On my Macbook, fn{up} goes up roughly a page while cmd{up} goes to the very top. The same is true for fn{down} going down a "page" and cmd{down} going to the very bottom. I like tapping the top of the screen in iOS to get back to the top and I didn't realize cmd{up} gives me a similar feature in OSX. Nice.
