A lot of InDesign users came from PageMaker and PageMaker's pages were actually laid out horizontally at the bottom of the screen. That was kind of like there are horizontal pages panel if you all knew. It had a little thumbnail for each page. You double-clicked on this horizontal row of pages to navigate from page to page. It turns out in InDesign the pages are laid out in kind of a toilet paper roll fashion. To kind of show you what I am talking about, if I zoom out, you can actually zoom out much farther than just the page level, Command+Minus, Ctrl+Minus. If I go far enough, you can actually see the entire roll of pages.
So that lets you scroll through the entire document screen by screen. So let's go back to Fit to Window, Command+0, Ctrl+0, and then to go one screen at a time, not necessarily one full page at a time, but one screen at a time you just use the Page Up and Page Down keys. So if I use page down, it goes one screen at a time. At some point you might end up seeing more than one page in your current view, depending on where that screen happens to fall between the pages. So there you have it, just go back one screen at a time by using Page Up and Page Down keys.
Your Home key will take you to the very beginning and your End key will take you to the very end. So there you have it. Let's go back to Home. Page Down, Page Up, one screen at a time.
