No. I instead of taking you to the task in your current viewt, it puts you 
to the very top task of the entire view! That does not help me work through 
my list from the current position.

So far the best I can do is 
1. Use my mouse to carefully left-click on the task that is about to 
2. Without moving the mouse, use the keyboard to change the Start Date  
(e.g. Alt+S, 3 D [Enter]  )
==> The task now disappears from the view
==> The next task should come up the page into its place
3. Without moving the mouse, left-click again 

This works but it's fiddly and requires concentration. And it slows one 
down because anything to do with using the mouse slows one down.  Plus too 
much mouse use gives me RSI.
