The key combinations to move to the top or bottom of the current screen are
Ctrl+Alt+PgUp and Ctrl+Alt+PgDn. That’s Ctrl+Alt, not just the Ctrl key. And yes, few
people use these commands.
You may be tempted to use Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDn, but don’t: These keyboard shortcuts work
with the Find command. See Chapter 5 .
Go Back to Where You Once Edited
Considering all the various commands for moving the insertion pointer, it’s quite possible to make a
mistake and not know where you are in a document. Yea, verily, the insertion pointer has gone
where no insertion pointer has gone before.
Rather than click your heels together three times and try to get back the wishful way, just
remember this keyboard combination:
Pressing the Shift+F5 keys forces Word to return you to the last spot you edited. You can do this as
many as three times before the cycle repeats. But the first time should get you back to where you
were before you got lost.
Sadly, the Shift+F5 keyboard shortcut works only in Word; you can’t use this command
in real life.
Go to Wherever with the Go To Command
Word’s Go To command allows you to send the insertion pointer to a specific page or line or to the
location of a number of interesting elements that Word can potentially cram into your document.
The Go To command is your word processing teleporter to anywhere.
To use the Go To command, click the Find button in the Home tab’s editing group. Choose the Go
To command from the menu. Or you can use the Ctrl+G keyboard shortcut. Either way, the Go To
tab portion of the Find and Replace dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 3-3 .
