Page Up and Page Down in IE

Key mapping for “Page Up” and “Page Down” in Internet Explorer

1. Open your favorite registry editor then navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

2. Create a new key ‘KeyMaps’ (without the quotes)

3. Under KeyMaps, create 2 new DWORD values:

50 with a value data 1 (this will make key “2” Page Up)

56 with a value data 2 (this will make key “8” Page Down)

I created 2 more DWORD values:

52 with a value date 5 (this will make key “4” Page Left)

54 with a value date 6 (this will make key “6” Page Right)

The key name is the keycode you want. 50 = Key 2, 56 = Key 8, 52 = Key4, and 54 = Key 6.

Other DWORD values available are:

1 – Page Up
2 – Page Down
3 – Top
4 – Bottom
5 – Left
6 – Page Rignt
7 – Horizontal Top
8 – Horizontal Down
9 – Default Layout
10 – Desktop Layout
11 – One Column Layout
12 – Full Screen Toggle
13 – Show Pictures Toggle

Keycodes Values for 0-9: 48=’0′, 49=’1′, 50=’2′, 51=’3′, 52=’4′, 53=’5′, 54=’6′, 55=’7′, 56=’8′, 57=’9′.

4. Exit registry editor once you have mapped it to your favorite keys.
I use:
49 3, 50 1, 52 5, 54 6, 55 4, 56 2, 69 1, 70 6, 83 5, 87 3, 88 2, 90 4

69 with a value data 1 (this will make key “E or 2” Page Up)

70 with a value data 6 (this will make key “F or 6” Page Right)

83 with a value date 5 (this will make key “S or 4” Page Left)

88 with a value date 2 (this will make key “X or 8” Page Down)
