How To Page Up & Page Down on a Mac (inc. Safari, Pages & Office)

If you’ve just switched from a Windows PC to Mac, you may be wondering where the “Page-Up” and “Page-Down” keys are. Macs don’t actually have an individual key for them but you can easily scroll-up and scroll-down on a page by holding down the Function (fn) key + the Up and Down arrow keys.

This keyboard shortcut works for most applications on a Mac including Safari, Pages and Microsoft Office (now Microsoft 365) although there may be some that don’t recognize it.

The Function or “fn” key (sometimes known as the “globe” key or “modifier” key) is on the bottom left of your MacBook Pro, MacBook Pro and any other Apple Bluetooth keyboard with the arrow keys found on the bottom right.
