    How do I page up and down quickly?

    How do you do it? It's not like a PC. Very new to Mac.

    Try Command + the up or down arrow.

    Fn-up arrow = page up
    Fn-dn arrow = page dn

    For reference, here is Apple's list of system shortcuts: https://support.apple.com/kb/HT1343

    Definitely learn the key symbols shown at the top of that list, as menu items have their shortcuts displayed symbolically.

    I also recommend you get friendly with the Help menu, which is always the rightmost menu. Typing "keyboard shortcuts" in there provides a lot of this information.

    Welcome to Mac.

    Thank you for the helpful info!

    This is what I was needing. Thank you! I wanted to go to the top of the page.

    This only changes the desk top view. But thanks anyway.:)

    Not really. It's very simple.

    Fn-up arrow = page up
    Fn-down arrow = page down
    Fn-left arrow = top of page
    Fn-right arrow = bottom of page
