    Does anyone now how to "Page Down" in MSFT Word for Mac w/ a wireless Apple keyboard or directly on my MBP, both of which do not have the page down button? I looked for keyboard shortcuts, but came up with nothing. Any help would be much appreciated!

    press fn+down arrow key. the arrow keys should say page, home and end on them.

    On the MBP and the Apple Wireless Keyboard, there's nothing written on the arrow keys.... except arrows!

    Thanks everyone for the comments and help. If I recall correctly, my old powerbook used to have "page" written on the arrow keys.

    All MBPs up to Santa Rosa has the page/up/down keys. The Penryn ones stopped. You can press alt/option+up/down too.

    Fn + arrow up or down doesn't work?!

    I've read a bunch of posts here and elsewhere about how to get the Apple keyboard to do page-up or page-down, and suggestions tend to focus on using either the Fn or Command key + arrow-up/down.

    This doesn't work for me in Microsoft Word for Mac. In both cases, it moves the cursor up by paragraphs only, not up or down the page. I have an older Macbook - first generation - running OS X 10.4.11, and am using an EXTERNAL keyboard - the wired, short one without the number pad.

    Any suggestions? Is there a way to change the behaviour of certain keys in certain programs?

    If you try using the Help function built into Word, you'd have your answer:
    Up one screen (scrolling) PAGE UP (fn + up arrow)
    Down one screen (scrolling) PAGE DOWN (fn + down arrow)
    To the top of the next page ⌘+PAGE DOWN
    To the top of the previous page ⌘+PAGE UP​

    Mac Book Air

    FYI,

    FN+Up Arrow for Page Up and FN+Down Arrow for Page down works on my 2007 Mac Book Air in Word 2011.

    Thanks for the tip.
