I have a Mac at home and a PC at the office. To access my work PC we use LogMeIn. It works pretty well, except I have not been able to figure out how to use the HOME and END keys while accessing my work PC from the Mac via LogMeIn.

I need to be able to jump to the beginning and ending of lines in a text document. Anyone know how?

From one of the first answers I posted...

Macs have this function, just not a default button for it. Simply use any of these for special keys:

fn + = home

fn + = end

fn + = Page Up

fn + = Page Down

command + = Top of Document

command + = Bottom of Document

(Sometime home and top of document get switched around, it depends on program, but generally the above is correct)

Did you really mean command+downarrow for "Top of Document" or is that a typo? – JRobert Sep 4 '10 at 14:47
Thank you. I only use the mac for xcode, which fn + --> moves you to end of file and command + --> moves you to end of line. – dr. Sep 4 '10 at 15:16

According to the LogMeIn manual (warning: PDF), you first click the button on the LogMeIn toolbar to pop up the on-screen keyboard. Then click the Extra keys button. From there, you can "swipe left and right" to select the keys you need. Not exactly fast, but at least it's workable.
