A Frustrating End

Category: WindowsTeknovis @ 4:33 pm

I have recently been trying to use the Home and End buttons regularly when I am viewing large documents within Windows. However, it has been a bit frustrating, because their behaviour seems to vary depending on the application that I am using them within :(

For example, they pan to the beginning or end of a document within Firefox.  Whereas in Notepad++ they move the cursor to the beginning or end of the current line.

:(

    I think the Firefox behavior is not standard. The usual keyboard shortcuts in a windows app are:
    End – pan to end of line
    Home – pan to start of line
    Ctrl+End – pan to end of document
    Ctrl+Home – pan to start of document

    Thanks for the Ctrl+ shortcut tips!
