    I know I can use the up and down arrow keys on the keyboard to scroll up and down a web page while browsing, instead of using a mouse to do that. What key(s), if any, can I use to move the web page forward or backward a page instead of moving my computer's cursor up to the the back or forward key buttons to perform that function? You'd think that using the side to side arrow keys would do the trick but they're inactive and useless.

    Any alternatives? It's probably something stupid like push the F6 key 3 times while holding down the ctrl and function key after pushing and holding down the F12 key for 14 seconds then push the back space key for no more than 10th of a nano second.

    Ah, ah. I think the back space key will take me back a page. But what about forwarding on to a page?

    Alt+Right arrow will take you forward.

    If you're using Firefox you can use CTRL+Pag Up or Page Down to move through the tabs.

    Alt + left/right arrows.
