So what if I want to scroll one page at a time? Not one screen at a time, but one page at a time. If you remember Page Up and Page Down, that's just one screen at a time, and the pages just fall wherever they fall, depending on the size of the page, and the size of your monitor. Let's go back to the beginning by pressing the Home key on the keyboard. It takes us back to the beginning. I want to make sure I see one whole page as I turn from page to page. So the first thing we are going to do is make sure our whole page is fitting in the window. We'll do Command+1. In this case we'll do 100%. If you want to be really sure, you can do Command+0 or Ctrl+0, but 100% is perfect for this particular document.
Instead of doing one screen at a time, I want to do one full page, so just add Shift to your Page Up and Page Down keys. Shift+Page Down takes me to the next page instead of the next screen and I can just keep going through holding down the Shift key and doing Page Down. Shift+Page Up goes up one full page at a time. Now one little nice thing about this behavior, if I press the Z key and zoom up on this page number here, let's put that right in the center of our screen, real nice and big, like so. Now when I hold down Shift+Page Up and Page Down, it is going to turn one whole page, but because I'm zoomed up much larger than fitting the page in the window, I am going to end up in the same relative location on every single page that I turn to.
So watch the page numbers here. Shift+Page Down, I see page 2. Shift+Page Down, I see page 3 and so forth. So you are taken to the same location, just to a different page by holding down the Shift key when you use the Page Up and Page Down keys. If I want to go back to seeing the whole page in my view, remember, changing pages doesn't actually change your document view. You have to do that explicitly, so we'll do Command+0 or Ctrl+0 to fit the page in the window, and then Shift+ Page Up or Shift+Page Down to return one whole page at a time.
