Go back to last location in Word

Let’s say you have a large Word document and you are working on page 23.  You scroll up to look at something on page 6 and then want to quickly get back to page 23.  In early versions of Word, you could just press one of the arrow keys on the keyboard and it would take you back to the page where the insertion point was (page 23).  Now pressing the arrow keys moves the insertion point to the page you are looking at (page 6).

So what do you do?  Press Ctrl+Alt+Z.  This takes you back to the page where the insertion point is located.
