Page Up and Page Down  

Postby jestepp65 » Sun Oct 08, 2017 10:10 pm

Hi All,

I bought a computer and it runs FlightGear better then the last. The graphics are better and everything. I am only experiencing one problem. This computer is a laptop with a full keyboard (number pad on the right side is with the built in keyboard) but i am having trouble getting the Page Up and Page Down key to move the throttle of the plane. I have tried holding FN and CTRL when doing it but the throttle won't budge unless i click. Which is a great problem for me! the Page up and Page Down buttons are located above the right number pad because its a laptop keyboard. Can anyone help me solve this?
Best Regards,

If you're on a laptop where you have to press fn to use Page Up or Page Down, you can use the 9 and 3 keys instead. I do, for example.
Edit: By the way, HOLD the key down. Tapping it will only increase it by a very little amount.
There are free alternatives to every program you encounter. You just have to find them.
