For example the code below,

1: aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
2: aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
3: aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

The arrow key moves the cursor from one character to the left, right, up, and down. If I want to move two or multiple movements at one time, how it is achieved?

Thank you.

You can prefix them with a number like the other mouvements j or l.

2<down> move 2 lines down like 2j
