If I reach left-most end of a line and press left-arrow it doesn't take me to the previous line.

Similarly, if I keep pressing right arrow, the cursor keeps going towards infinity, without ever moving to the next line.

How do I change this behavior to desired one?

Find Tools -> IDE Options -> Editor (in OSX it's Preferences -> Editor). In the area entitled "Virtual Space" uncheck "Allow placement of caret after end of line". Click "Apply" and you're good to go.

That's not the preference location, possibly due to a menu change. To find it I used Help > Find Action > "Virtual Space" – Chip McCormick May 5 '14 at 21:56
