The insertion point is the blinking vertical bar that represents where text will be inserted as you type.
Click anywhere inside the document.
The insertion point moves to where you clicked—or, at least, as close as possible. If you click in a margin, or after the end of the text toward the bottom of the page, the insertion point moves to the closest point it can.
You can also move the insertion point around using the keyboard. This method is described in the table below.
To Move the Insertion Point
Arrows (↑ ↓ ← →)
Up or down one line; or left or right one character.
To the beginning of the current line.
To the end of the current line.
Up one screen, while also scrolling the page the same distance.
Down one screen, while also scrolling the page the same distance.
Ctrl + Arrows (↑ ↓ ← →)
Up or down one paragraph; or left or right one word.
When a document gets long enough, it can be tough to navigate through the whole thing with just the keyboard. You can use the scroll bars on the right and bottom sides of the window to move through the document quickly.
Click the arrow buttons at the top, bottom, and sides of the scroll bar to scroll one line at a time.
Click and drag a scroll bar to move quickly though a document, releasing it when you’ve reached the page you want.
