    Thanks Gary. I have a large spreadsheet (over 1000 rows). I would like to be able to scroll quickly to the top of the table and to the bottom of the table and have tried Fn+Up Arrow. But it doesn't do what I think it should do. Could I have something miss-configured?

    Gene: fn+Up Arrow will scroll up one page. If you want to jump to the top and your keyboard doesn't have a Home key, use fn+Left Arrow.

    What is the shortcut to close a page?

    Char: What do you mean by "close a page?" Which app? What sort of page? For instance, in Pages it doesn't make any sense to "close a page." You would scroll up or down, but no close anything. Maybe you mean close a window (File, Close Window) or close a tab (File, Close Tab). Those are Command+W and Command+Shift+W depending on if you are using tabs or not in that app.
