    Okay, when I push the down arrow it goes to the bottom of whatever I'm on and the same with the up arrow (opposite direction). It is not allowing me to scroll through anything via using the arrows. How do I reset, or fix this?

    It sounds like the keypad may have a mode or switch which makes those keys to be the "End" key when you press the (down arrow) and when you press the (up arrow) key it looks like the "Home"

    See if you have some altering switch or feature of your keyboard that does that. If it does, then shut it off.

    Thanks for the response, didn't find any switch on my keyboard to correct the problem though.

    How about you just tell us the brand and model of your keyboard.

    So this is a laptop. Well, that is a horse of a different color.

    And, according to the Toshiba documentation, there is a "Fn" key (I think it has blue lettering on it) and by pressing it and at the SAME TIME you press F10 you to change to the cursor control mode (on or off). There is a light to signify when the mode is on or off.

    There is also the Fn+F11 key combo to change to the numeric keypad, which shares some of the letter keys to become the numeric keypad. I suspect that when in the "cursor control mode" those up/down arrow keys become Home/End respectively.

    There is user documentation that explains all this. See: User Doc
