    Thank you!
    I wish I'd have mastered the various express keys long ago.
    I do use PgUp & PgDn which is much more stable than the scroll wheel, but lately, only scroll wheel works with many web pages.

    I also knew about Ctrl-Home, & Ctrl-End, & Ctrl-X & Ctrl-V,
    ..but not those combo-keys you mentioned.
    Thanks for letting me know (now if only I could remember them!

    As for partitioning, that sorta sounds permanent (and involved) and meantime, I'd bought a refurb. tower which turns out to have a probable defective ethernet jack, so now I have my hands full with that & other stuff in my life.

    But at least I learned a bit more, even if just getting my feet wet in Linux.

    Thanks again.

    try selecting a couple of pages of text using a mouse and you soon learn a few keyboard shortcuts ... a list of some more office shortcuts can be found here.

    Good luck with the desktop ...

    Thanks!
    Can I assume that the OpenOffice keyboard shortcuts work within any textboxes used in online forums?
    No matter which OS or browser?

    You should find things like text selection work but other shortcuts are less likely to be relevant ... I guess you will learn the shortcuts that work for one application, it's a bonus they work with others as well
