Is there a way/third party app that can make Page Up/Down jump just a few lines? This could be activated by holding down Ctrl or some other key.

I always think Page Up/Down scrolls to much, and holding down the arrow keys takes to long.

I'm using Windows 7.

Thanks!

For this kind of scrolling I find it best to use a mouse with a scroll wheel, where the scroll amount in lines can be programmed.

This lets me use Page Up/Down or scroll wheel, as appropriate.

As a programmer I would prefer to use the keyboard. If there is a solution to my problem, I'd probably end up using the mouse less, which I think is a good thing. – Znarkus Sep 8 '10 at 9:26

Probably not good for your repetitive strain injury (RSI) – harrymc Sep 8 '10 at 9:37

I solved my problem by installing the free, excellent and well documented AutoHotKey.

By pressing Ctrl+Alt and Page Up/Down, the cursor moves 15 lines up/down. Script provided below.

^!PgUp::Send {Up 15}
^!PgDn::Send {Down 15}

I don't think there is any 3rd party out there for this purpose

I think you need to do a combination of both to get the right page scroll

Try asking about coding a program for this purpose in stack overflow – subanki Sep 8 '10 at 11:55
