2) Type control-X. Note that "C-x" appears in the minibuffer/echo area.
3) Type a sequence of j's and k's. The screen scrolls down to the next item when j is pressed, and it

next key in the sequence that began with control-X.

even though that page also assigns a function to the k key (it moves the marker to the previous message).
