    Default Anyone using Excel on Mac?

    I hate wrangling data in Excel but it is paying the bills.

    Navigating in Excel sheets in Mac is frustrating me as recent Mac convert - is there an equivalent to page up and page down keys? I googled it but none of the suggestions seems to work.

    fn and up or down
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    Realising you can use two fingers on the trackpad to scroll up/down was a revelation for me after owning a mac for over a year

    I guess that should work in Excel too.

    Ah yes that's all well and good until you are resting another finger somewhere on the track pad and all your windows grow in size - or split into loads of different windows

    or something.

    Thanks all - I know this is a "lazy" question - but anyone know the Mac equivalent of home and end when navigating in Excel?

    Command + the arrows - that will take you to first/last cell
