    I just got my macbook a few days ago.....Does anyone know if there is an "end" feature or a "home" feature on macs?? It's kind of annoying to not be able to just hit a button to get to the end or beginning of a line while typing. Nothing major, but it would help if I knew where it was if there is one. Thanks!! Also, what does the FN button do in the lower left hand corner on the keyboard? :confused:

    Command+left/right arrow

    fn does different things in different situations, but for example fn+a volume key does not change the volume, but acts as the F key it is :)

    Ok, thank you! Do you know if there is an "end" feature like on PCs?

    command+left arrow is home

    command+right arrow is end

    On my MBP it says that on the keys.

    Flipping up and down with three fingers on a multitouch trackpad also does the trick.
