    Ok, I couldn't think of a better subject line. Let me describe this as briefly as possible:
    * I open a Finder window and select a file (by just hitting a key, like an arrow key for example, which will select the first file). The Finder view is in "icon view"
    * I hit "Page Down" to scroll down a few pages
    * And I see a file that I'd like to open (or perform some action on)
    * The "focus" that was on the first file initially is still at the same place and hasn't moved down through these pages after hitting "Page Down"
    * How do I move the focus/selection down a page using the keyboard (and not the mouse) so that I can open a file in some page below by just pressing Cmd+DownArrow?

    I tried Option+DownArrow and that didn't help (Shift and Cmd have other meanings when used with DownArrow and don't help in scrolling in this context).

    I hope the question is clear. :)

    Thanks for your time and suggestions. :)

    No keyboard shortcut to position the focus at the end of a list? :confused:

    Need to hit the "missing manual" again! ;)
