    Hello there and welcome, the senior guys may correct me but I'll give it a go.

    If you haven't got a Mac yet or have just switched then use the 'Switcher Hangout'.

    If you are running something like Office for Mac then this would probably belong in the 'OS X- Apps and Games' forum; and if you are booting you Mac up as a PC then you would use the 'Running Windows (or anything else) on your Mac'.

    It is recommended that you put the specs of your equipment with your title in your membership profile so that people can make more assured responses.

    Questions about MS Word for Mac
    Thanks for the reply, pendlewitch. I switched to the Apple world in April, and am loving it!

    I'm using an iMac with a wireless keyboard (which has less keys than the full "wired" keyboard) and a MacBook Air (ditto vis-a-vis the larger laptops).

    My specific questions concern shortcut keystrokes in MS Word for Mac for the iMac wireless keyboard (and the MacBook Air keyboard). Most critically, how to go to beginning and end of a document. In the wireless keyboard, there's no "End" or "Top" or "Page Down" or "Page Up" keys. Every online help resource I've found so far does not give alternative keystrokes for keyboards that do not have these keys.

    So, can anyone help on this...or, tell me where is the best Forum for getting answers to these questions?

    Many thanks!

    You were given three specific answers as to which forum in the thread you replied to from Pendlewitch.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    I've taken the guesswork out of the equation and given you your own thread.

    As a bonus - I'll give you the answer to your question. If you hold down the fn key and use the up or down arrows - it will function as page up/down. Hold down fn and cmd simultaneously and hit the right or left arrows - you get home/end.

    Many thanks for the answers to my questions on shortcut keys for MS Word for Mac using a wireless keyboard! Do you know of any "master list" of shortcut keys for the wireless keyboard? Your answers have helped me with the most common of my frustrations for the past eight months, but there might be others where the wireless and "wired" keyboards are different, and where it might be helpful to know the shortcuts for the former.

    Thanks in advance...and, thanks for the quick answer to my "critical" needs!

    I don't know of any master list - to be honest - I didn't know those shortcuts until I went and experimented with different combinations. I do know that option + arrow up or cmd + arrows can be home or end depending on the application so I just used different combos until I found what I was looking for. I'm sure there's a master list of shortcuts somewhere but I don't know about wired vs wireless - I would expect the shortcuts to be pretty much the same for each.

    No problem. Thanks for your help. I suspect shortcuts are pretty much the same for the two keyboards, except for the ones you've identified. So, again, thanks.

    Using Windows Notepad in bootcamp: fn/control/left or right arrow gets you to Home or End keys.

    You might try CheatSheet.

    And here is a PDF of shortcuts: Mac shortcuts PDF.

    These are Mac specific, but not application specific. Usually each application will provide a similar sheet.

    LibreOffice 3.6, Accordance 10.0, Adobe CS4, DTP 2.4.3
