Hi,

I regularly visit various internet forums and was wondering if there was a shortcut key for the Next button along the bottom of the screen to get the next page?

I usually skip through the thread with the Space bar so would prefer a key to do this rather than go back to the Touch Panel to navigate slowly to the correct button alongside the page numbers.

Nope, not that I know of. It's like clicking any other link out there.

There is a macro-like recording program called "TinyTask Portable" that can perform a series of recorded actions (mouse clicks, scrolling, keyboard strokes, etc).

You could potentially record a macro of you scrolling to the location of the Next button and clicking it, then map this macro to a hotkey (F6 or something). If the Next button were in the same place on every page (the very top or very bottom would be best, as you could End or Home to the same place every time), that would be best.

Whether or not it is faster and/or more convenient than manually navigating to the correct button and clicking it yourself is up to you.

Just thought I'd search Firefox add-ons and there's a nice little one which lets you press the space bar (which I've just started using to scroll down) at the end of the page to go to the next.

What a result!

Thanks anyway for taking the time to reply, appreciated!
