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 ↓
Forward Delete is Fn delete
Insert is Fn return*2
They used to label these on older MacBooks/PowerBooks.
Note 1: 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.
Note 2: OS X by default has no Insert functionality, however it is respected in some situations being Virtual Machines, Bootcamp, other Remote Desktops. Notably it also works in Google Chrome extensions that expect the Insert key for some other functionality (other than overtyping, which does not exist in OS X). Be careful though, in text boxes, dialog boxes and the like, it will always act as an enter key.
In text editors such as TextEdit or Pages:
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.
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.
Some programs also respect:
go to the beginning of a document Fn⌘←
go to the end of a document Fn⌘→
(this works for me in editors and IDEs written in Java)
I love to use secureshell when ssh-ing different servers. For me the way to pageup pagedown is:
⌘ + ↓ gets to the end of the document
⌘ + ↑ gets to the beginning of the document
