The End and Home Keys: The Alpha and Omega

Darcy reminded me this morning to remind you about the End and Home keys and how handy they are and how much time they can save.  But it seems that many people don’t know they even have End and Home keys on their keyboards or how those 2 keys can save you time.

First of all, you’ll have to locate the End and Home keys on your keyboard. There are so many different keyboard layouts so he location of the Home and End keys varies between laptops and desktops and even between computer manufacturer and model

We’re going to show you a couple of places to look. But keyboards vary, so you may have to look closely at your keyboard to find the End and Home keys.

Here are 2 examples:

Once you find the Home and End keys on your keyboard…

The Home key takes to the top of a web page or document; the End key takes you to the bottom of a web page or document.  In some programs, you will need to use CTRL+Home and CTRL+End to move to the top or bottom of a document. And some laptop keyboards require you to use the fn key + CTRL + Home or fn key + CTRL+ End key to access Home and End keys.

Anyway, using the Home and End keys (or CTRL+Home and CTRL+End) saves you time by taking you directly to the top or the bottom (or the end) of a webpage or document instantly.

If you want to get to the top or bottom of a page or document quickly, this is a little trick you won’t forget.

    Thanks for the great tip. I knew about the home key but never knew about the end.
    What a great help to also go back to the end.

    Hi Tried the Home and End keys which are on my number pad. Using the different combinations didnt work unfortunately, but the Ctrl+End took me to my previous open web page. Any suggestios would be appreciated.
