Re: Keyboard shortcut for "Home" on a Mac with no "Home" button

I tried it and additional add the keyboard shortcut to the History Menu. Regrettably when I tried to utilize the shortcut, the History Menu flashed blue additional than nothing occurred. I encompass noticed in the past that a number of submission keyboard shortcuts that are built into submission do not work. Encompass no idea why.

Re: Keyboard shortcut for "Home" on a Mac with no "Home" button

This might resonance silly, other than I actually miss this characteristic (general to the entire PCs, additional than not to Macs). I would similar to accomplish these tasks in my OS.X (10.3.x) Mac Mini. When in a browser or in a perpendicular scrolling window. Pressing <Home> on the keyboard goes to the pinnacle of the page, and pressing <End> goes to the substructure. When in a document, or typing text, pressing <Home> goes to the commencement of the line and <End> goes to the end of that line. This keyboard "characteristic" is missing from the entire my macs from OS X (10.1) from side to side the present version. Are there any hacks, work around, or software patches that determine to permit me to "emulate" PC keyboard commands (such as Home/End).
