  • Most of us who have converted from Windows to Mac hate the Mac’s usage of the Home and End keys (move to beginning of file or end of file, respectively.) Here’s a trick to ‘fix’ them:

To make home and end keys work on a mac simply copy this into the specified file (DefaultKeyBinding.dict)

<code>
/* ~/Library/KeyBindings/DefaultKeyBinding.dict */
{
    "^f"      = "moveWordForward:";            /* Ctrl-f    = next word     */
    "^b"      = "moveWordBackward:";           /* Ctrl-b    = previous word */
    "^v"      = "pageUp:";                     /* Ctrl-v    = page up       */
    "UF729"  = "moveToBeginningOfLine:";      /* Home      = start of line */
    "$UF729" = "moveToBeginningOfLineAndModifySelection:";  /* Shift-Home = start of doc  */
    "^UF729" = "moveToBeginningOfDocument:";  /* Ctrl-Home = start of line and select  */
    "@UF729" = "moveToBeginningOfDocument:";  /* Cmd-Home = staart of doc  */
    "UF72B"  = "moveToEndOfLine:";      /* End      = end of line */
    "$UF72B" = "moveToEndOfLineAndModifySelection:";  /* Shift-End = end of line and select  */
    "^UF72B" = "moveToEndOfDocument:";  /* Ctrl-End = end of doc  */
    "@UF72B" = "moveToEndOfDocument:";  /* Cmd-End = end of doc  */
}
</code>

Everything seems to work except firefox, sadly.
