    Love my Mac Pro, keyboard question
    I'm not sure where to post this, sry.

    I just switched from Windows to Mac (got a Mac Pro), and OMFG! I love it.

    I do have a question, though. In Windows, I'm used to pressing the "home" key on the keyboard to make the cursor move to the beginning of a text box (eg. address bar in Safari), or the "end" key to make the cursor move to the end of a line, etc.

    But this doesn't seem to work on Mac. I've looked under keyboard settings, but can't seem to locate the problem (if it is, indeed a problem).

    Even as I'm typing in this text box, it's not working.

    Similarly, I'm used to being able to selecting a whole line of text by going to the end of it end key, pressing and holding down shift, and pressing the home key.

    Is there any way I can activate these features?

    Thanks!

    Hi, here's a link that I found via google, there seems to be a whole bunch of key-combinations: http://davespicks.com/writing/programming/mackeys.html

    End = command key + right arrow
    Home = command key + left arrow

    Those same shortcuts with shift key will allow you to select text...

    At least thats how things work with my iMac

    Thank you! so much!

    It's been really frustrating when I'm trying to type, so I really appreciate this!
