Intuitive Up/Down Key Responses


Google Docs and the open source Windows app Notepad++ (and Gmail) have a helpful feature. If your cursor is in the middle of a line, it will move down the page as you press the down button. If you reach the bottom line and you press it again, it will move to the end of the line. Similarly, if you go upward and reach the top, if you press it again, it will go to the start of the line.

This is great because I don’t have to stop and hunt for the end or home keys. It’s so natural to me and built into the bulk of the software I use, I didn’t even realize it wasn’t standard
