Word 2016 PageUp and PageDown after using Replace

I use Word 2016.  For previous versions, using the Replace function would alter Page up/down navigation.  In Word 2016, I no longer see the tiny icon in the bottom right corner that would restore PageUp/Down back to normal.  What do I do now?  My PageUp/Down is stuck in the mode of looking for my Replace search term.

You can also use the Ctrl+G command and tell it to go to the next page.

This restores the PgUp/PgDn and Ctrl+ versions.

This is the third tab on the Find/Replace dialog. You can switch to it directly from a Replace or Advanced Find.

Like many experienced users, I miss the browse feature at the bottom of the scroll elevator.

I suspect that not many users used it and that it confused neophytes.

The user request to bring this back was declined.

This has been overlooked in recent versions of Word, unfortunately. You can restart Word to get the "default" functionality back for Ctrl+PageUp (and Ctrl+PageDown).

Alternatively, if you usually need to move between pages, you can assign keyboard shortcuts to the PageUp and PageDown built-in commands in the Customize Keyboard dialog box (File | Options | Customize Ribbon | Customize).
