What combination of keys (fn, control, option, command, arrow keys) is the equivalent of the Home key on a MacBook Pro?

What about End/PageUp/PageDown?

  • Home is Fn

  • End is Fn

  • Page Up is Fn

  • Page Down is Fn

They used to label these on older MacBooks/PowerBooks.

Also note: Not every application respects this, or behaves as expected.

Terminal is a notable example; for Fn arrow to work as expected when coming from a Linux background, the settings must be changed.

In text editors such as TextEdit or Pages:

  • Beginning of Wrapped Line (reposition cursor) is
  • End of Wrapped Line (reposition cursor) is
  • Beginning of Line (reposition cursor) is A
  • End of Line (reposition cursor) is E
  • Page Up (reposition cursor) is Fn
  • Page Down (reposition cursor) is Fn or V

I have a 2011 Macbook Air. Fn with the arrow-keys did not work for me.

It seems that Command + Right Arrow is the equivalent of End.

Same here with an 2013 Air. Annoying since I'm used to Fn+L/R on my MacBook Pro and now have to break the habit. –  wes Apr 2 at 15:49

I found that I need to use the Command + whatever arrow/directional key you need

In XCode 4.4 (MacOS X 10.6) for the MacBook pro, the Fn-direction keys don't work to navigate to beginning / end / top / bottom of lines.

Only the Command + directional key buttons work.

I have a MacBookPro and the fn and left arrow takes me to beginning of text and fn and right arrow takes me to ed of text. cmd also performs the same functions. Only fn and up or down arrows will page up or down.
