    Or, and here's the beauty of it, turn and pop out the slider to use the navigation keys.

    considering you actually posted the smartass comment AFTER the actual answer was given just shows your comedic timing pretty much stinks. You must be horrible at parties :p

    You're looking for advice/support rather than offering a Tip or Trick, so I moved your question to the Support and Troubleshooting area for you. ;)
