You can use either set of arrow keys on the computer keyboard, but when using the
numeric keypad, ensure that the Num Lock light is off. Do this by pressing the Num Lock key.
If you don’t, you see numbers in your text rather than the insertion pointer dancing all over
— like444this.
Moving from beginning to end
The insertion pointer also bows to pressure from those cursor keys without arrows on them. The first
couple consists of End and Home, which move the insertion pointer to the start or end of something,
depending on how End and Home are used:
Press This Key or Combination
To Whisk the Insertion Pointer
End
To the end of a line of text
Home
To the start of a line of text
Ctrl+End
To the end of the document
Ctrl+Home
To the tippy-top of the document
The remaining cursor keys are the Page Up or PgUp key and the Page Down or PgDn key. As you
might guess, using these keys doesn’t move up or down a page in your document. Nope. Instead,
they slide through your document one screen at a time. Here’s the roundup:
Press This Key or
Combination
To Whisk the Insertion Pointer
Up one screen or to the tippy-top of your document, if you happen to be near
it
PgUp
PgDn
Down one screen or to the end of the document, if you happen to be near it
Ctrl+Alt+PgUp
To the top of the current screen
Ctrl+Alt+PgDn
To the bottom of the current screen
