How to Move Around in a Word Document

 

There are several ways to move around in a Word document.

1. You can use the arrow keys on your computer keyboard, as seen in the picture below.

2. The left key in the diagram above with the arrow pointing left is used to move the insertion point in your document one character to the left.

The right key in the diagram above with the arrow pointing right is used to move the insertion point in your document one character to the right.

The key in the diagram above with the arrow pointing up is used to move the insertion point in your document one character up your document.

The key in the diagram above with the arrow pointing down is used to move the insertion point in your document one character down your document.

If you were to hold down any one of the arrow keys it will move the insertion point one character at time, repeatedly, in the direction you chose, until you take your finger off the key.

If you were to hold down the ‘Ctrl’ key and press the left  or right arrow keys on your keyboard you would move one word at time either to the left or right of your document.

Another way to move around your document is to press the ‘PgDn’ (page down) or ‘PgUp’ (page up) keys on your computer keyboard. This moves you up or down your document one screen at a time. See the diagram below.
