Hi All

 

I have an Asus Laptop that I am using for work and the Page Up and Page Down keys are the same button as the Up and Down Arrow keys. When I try to use the "ctrl + pg up" shortcut to switch between excel sheets, excel performs the "ctrl + up arrow" short cut to move between cells instead. Is there a work around for this inconvenience? Thanks!

Solution
Possibly the [pg up] [pg dn] notes on the up and down keys can be activated with the [Fn] key.
So your key combination would be "Ctrl + Fn + up arrow"
