    I just purchased a MacBook Pro. With no dedicated Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down buttons, I use fn + arrow keys. This means that I use the fn key frequently--certainly more often than the option key. However, these buttons are on opposite sides of the keyboard, which is inconvenient. I would like to know, is there any software which switches the fn and option keys? I would love to be able to use the fn key with my right hand.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I believe pressing CMD will also work for certain things.

    That only allows you to remap caps lock, control, option or command (not fn) to only one of those four.

    To the OP:

    On my macbook, in addition to use fn + arrow keys, the following also works:
    command up/down = Home / End
    Option up/down = page up / down.

    Maybe it's the same for you and would help you?
