Use the Tab key to follow links

When you 'land' on a link, the link is surrounded by a box to show you that it is the current, or active link. Press the Enter key to follow the current link.

Scroll up and down the page

Instead of using your mouse to drag the scroll bar that is located on the right side of your page, try using the keyboard up arrow and down arrow keys to move up and down a page.

You can also move a screen's length at a time using your keyboard's Page Up and Page Down keys.
