Windows 7: Page up / down question.

Page up / down question.

Hi guys,

Since going to windows 7 I am having trouble using the page up, page down, and the arrow keys to navigate web pages.

The only key that somewhat works is the " page down " key but when I use it, instead of just moving the screen up to the to the last line displayed on the screen, It takes me ALL the way down to the last page.

How do I correct this ?

Many Thanks,

Hello,

What browser are you using? Have you considered using Firefox?

Hope this helps,

Hi,
go to
control panel,
internet options,
click on "advanced"
check the browsing tools
and select the "allow smooth scroll" If it is already selected, remove the check, turn off computer, boot up and then put the check back.

Hope that this answer gives you a Merry Christmas

I did this and it is now working.
( The box was already checked, but un-checking it and turning off computer, then rechecking it did the trick )

Many thanks for your help and Merry Christmas to all
