"We read in the manpage:

:n Examine the next file (from the list of files given in the com‐
mand line). If a number N is specified, the N-th next file is
examined.
:p Examine the previous file in the command line list. If a number
N is specified, the N-th previous file is examined."

Found out from :h (help window) that I can use :p (for previous) and :n (for next)
