2. Use the scroll bar to move up and down the document, just as you would with a web page or a text document.

3. Use the arrows in the top menu bar.
Just hold the mouse over any arrow, and its purpose is obvious.

4. Choose "fit in window" and use the Page Up and Page Down keys. (Also a handy feature when you are showing a PDF as a presentation.)
