    Using an IPad Pro and the Smart Keyboard, is there some way to share a webpage via email without having to touch the screen, just with keyboard shortcuts?

    Thanks.

    CMD-L
    CMD-C
    Then you can CMD-tab to mail, make a new mail with cmd-n And CMD-V it

    Thanks. I just discovered that holding down the tab key displays shortcuts based on what you are doing. "Esc" was listed as a shortcut. Where is the esc key?

    Thanks.

    The bloody escape key got away. And I still miss it daily on my ASK....
    Holding down cmd doesn't show always everything.

    One is glad to be of service!

    Is there a way to also scroll through apps, such as Facebook, Feedly, etc. without having to touch the screen? The arrows on the keyboard do not work.

    Thanks.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to switch between apps, I meant literally scrolling through apps. In Safari you can use the up and down arrows to scroll a webpage up or down, though in other apps you can not, and you need to physically scroll through the app on screen.

    Oh, sorry. That is dependent on the app itself, it has to support such an action. Sometimes the space bar does the trick or a compnination of arrows and cmd opt or alt.
