So recently I got a new MacBook Pro and while I didn’t get everything setup the way I had it on my old MacBook, the one thing that was bothering me was the Home and End keys not working like they do on Windows. While this shouldn’t be a deal breaker, I knew on my old MacBook I had it setup so the keys would goto the begning of the line or the end of the line, but I couldn’t remember how it was done.
Finally today I stumbled across an old bookmark to stack overflow that had the setup in it.
I’m mainly just putting this here, so i’ll remember where it’s at, in the future, but i figured why not put the steps here
mkdir -p ~/Library/KeyBindings/
cat > ~/Library/KeyBindings/DefaultKeyBinding.dict <<- EOF
"\UF729" = moveToBeginningOfLine:;
"\UF72B" = moveToEndOfLine:;
"$\UF729" = moveToBeginningOfLineAndModifySelection:;
"$\UF72B" = moveToEndOfLineAndModifySelection:;
Now just restart most programs and you’ll be able to use Home and End like you do on a Windows box.
