Bug Description

Trackpads on netbooks are clumsy, and the displays are short. Many Unity screens, but particularly the Applications and Files&Folders screens, require using the trackpad to manipulate a narrow vertical scroll bar on the RHS of the screen to see everything. It's awkward.

It seems natural to let us use the arrow keys for this.

Changed in unity:
status: New → Opinion
importance: Undecided → Wishlist

Surely page-up, page-down are the natural choices?
