I use Mathematica on a Mac. If I place the text cursor in the middle of some text/maths and press ALT $\rightarrow$ or ALT $\leftarrow$, the cursor moves forwards or backwards (respectively) one full "word", like it does on regular word processors. (Presumably there is a similar shortcut on Windows, perhaps CTRL $\rightarrow$ and CTRL $\leftarrow$.)

When working with really big expressions, sometimes finding the parenthesis or bracket matching the selected (highlighted) one and navigating to it is a pain. Is there a keyboard shortcut to do this?

Thanks for any help.

I think you're looking for the menu item Edit | Check Balance or the equivalent keyboard short-cut Shift + Cmd + B.
