    Scrolling

    Advertisement



    I know that if you press the space key while on a web page it will scroll down by one page. If I press the ALT key an arrow appears at the top right of the screen, and it seems like when I first got the 8300 if you pressed the space key and ALT it used to scroll up by a page, but it doesn't any more. Is my memory faulty or is there another key combination for scrolling up quickly? Thanks.

    Try shift + space instead of using the alt key.

    Thank you, that worked! Maybe before this phone wears out I'll learn how to use it!

    Yes, because on certain pages when I trackball down, all of the sudden, browser decides it's time to move me all the way back up to the beginning of the page. And today it was doing the opposite, I was trying to read this news page and it threw me all the way to the bottom. Space is extremely useful but sometimes I need to scroll just a bit and I get tossed up and down.
    Any other browser better than the built-in one? Opera?

    The Opera mini browser just released a new beta 2 version with several nice revisions and BB optimizations. Takes some getting used to, but this version is much more usable IMO. Scrolling can be done in several ways including the u, n, h, & k keys
