    May I ask why you would need such a thing?

  • @markhunte There is no pagedown key and I don't like the fn+down arrow key shorcut. It is to difficult to reach.

Here is a simple example:

tell application "System Events"
    set frontmostProcess to first process where it is frontmost
    delay 0.01
    key code 121
end tell

116 is key code for page up. Here's a list of the other key codes: Key Codes for Function and Special Keys in Applescript
