Free Tech Tips: Mac Computer Keyboard Trick

Today we offer a great keyboard tip for Mac users.  A quicker page down and page up!   This is especially faster on portables and the new wireless iMac keyboard.  They require that you press “Function – down arrow” or “Function – up arrow” as a page down/page up. Here is a much easier solution……It works in a lot of applications, as long as you are not currently in a text box (it doesn’t work in Pages for that reason).  We tried it in Mail, Safari, Firefox and Camino and it was all fine.


To page down, you can simply hit “Space Bar” and to page up with “Shift – Space Bar”. It works very well and it is, nearly all the time, so much faster. We actually use it on our full size keyboards.
