I cannot find the keys on my mackbook. I need them to go page-up and page-down in irssi (IRC). I have tested the tips here but they do not work. They model some different Up/Down, not the traditional Up/Down as on larger keyboards.

How can I press PageUp and PageDown buttons with Macbook? Irssi is running behind ssh and GNU Screen with UTF8 support.

fn + shift + Up/Down

IIRC in previous versions of Mac OS X (Lion or perhaps earlier), fn had to come first. But I just tested fn vs. shift first and neither had a different effect.

This may be Terminal.app specific, and may not work in iTerm 2. YMMV

Thank you! Worked like charm with mountain lion, happy easter! –  hhh Mar 29 '13 at 21:11

It took me a while to guess that and I didn't find anything on Google, so at least, if somebody needs it, it's fn + Up/Down in iTerm 2.

I'm using irssi on Mavericks. For me it was fn + shift+ Up/Down

I'm using irssi within tmux on Yosemite.

When using laptop keyboard (no number pad) this works: fn + shift + up/down

When using a standard keyboard shift + page up/page down
