The gesture also works in Finder you're using three finger swipe instead of the default two.

Or:

Cmd + [
Cmd + ]

Where is the ] buttons ?

I have the small keyboard, and as i said Magic mouse.

three-finger swipe did not work in folders, are you sure this isnt only for the trackpad?

Ah....misread...yeah, I was referring to the trackpad. No clue about the mouse.

[ and ] or { and } are to right of the P

Might as well revive this decade old thread, as it is pretty much to my point.

After some searching, it seems there is no way to achieve this; navigating a Finder window in list view, back and forth, with one-finger-swipe on magic mouse, like you can in any browser or app with pages like a pdf.

Better Touch Tool might do it, if they fixed it, but I can't buy and install that just for this one function.

I think this should be a simple option in Finder or Mouse settings.
