MacBook Pro :: How To Remap Pc Home/end Keys To Top / End Of Document

Apr 13, 2012

I run a lot of PC programs on my Macbook pro and Air using Parallels. Almost all PC software assume you have a home and end keys which you can combine with ctrl to reach the beginning and end of your document. e.g. Openoffice and MS office both, word and excel, and text editors (I program in both C and python). I have big spreadsheets that I cannot navigate to the beginning or end of sheet or even use extra functionality like arrow + shift + end to highlight a column. The lack of these combinations on the Mac make working in excel and / or OpenOffice a pain. 

A read previous messages about using fn + left and fn+ right arrows, but these move me to the top of page /end of page I am currently in. Tried various combinations of cmd and alt with fn and arrows, non work. 

I dowloaded keyremap4macbook, tried their various options but non work, even when running OpenOffice spreadsheet on the Mac, I cannot seem to be able to navigate straight to the upper left cell. 

Previous answsers assumed the user is only using MS word and that is only an oddity of that software. I can assure you that almost all PC software has the assumption that you can go home/end and combine ctr home/ctrl end to navigate to top and end of document.

MacBook Pro :: Remap Home And End Keys With Fn And Arrows?

Jun 18, 2010

I'm a developer and I dual boot OSX with Ubuntu, basically for my work, although I'd like to progressively make the switch completely to OSX (mainly because of battery life).

One thing, though, that's keeping me away from making that change is the possibility to re-map "Home" and "End" keys, which I'd like to have as fn + <- and fn + ->.

Yes, I've searched and although I found a few topics about similar things, I never got to really soving my problem.

So, fellow experts, how can I accomplish this?

OS X :: How To Remap F9 / F-12 Keys

May 5, 2009

So I'm a little new to 10.5.

I'd like to remap my F9-F12 keys (I like them in a certain order).

Seems simple enough: Preferences/Keyboard and Mouse/Keyboard shortcuts.

But double clicking, then press a new key doesn't do a thing. What am I doing wrong?

OS X :: Is It Possible To Remap The Volume Function Keys

Nov 9, 2007

How would i go about remapping the volume function keys on my old white apple keyboard to match the sequence order of the macbook's volume keys?

what i mean is how can i remap the volume keys above the numpad so they are used in this order: mute, volume down, volume up like on the macbooks for F17, F18, F19 respectively instead of volume down, volume up, mute like on the old white apple keyboards for F17, F18, F19 respectively. if it is possible i would then just switch the volume keycaps around to match the mapping.

i found this article about modifying the to change the expos� and dashboard keys link. it says near the bottom that it may be possible to remap the volume keys but the author did not know the values... damn so close! does anyone know the values for the volume keys or know of any other way to change them?

Hardware :: Remap Alt And Cmd Keys & Use Eject As Sleep?

Feb 25, 2010

I have spent some time modifying the apple aluminum keyboard firmware in order to make it function as I wanted in Windows.

What I have achieved until now:

a) I am using the eject button as a sleep button (this also works in windows)

b) Swap alt and cmd buttons

There are no extra drivers/utilities involved. Everything is stored in the apple keyboard firmware and works even without bootcamp software.

If there are others interested, please post and I will make a tutorial.

This is primarily for users interested in using their aluminum keyboard on a windows PC

MacBook Air :: Home Row Keys Are Not Working?

Sep 6, 2010

MacBook Air Keyboard problems

Yesterday, without spilling anything on it, the left click on my trackpad (and on my wireless mouse) stopped functioning(MacBook Air/OSX 10.6.4/1.6 GhZ) After one hour it started working again. At first, I thought it must be related to settings that i had messed up in the meantime (Universal access, mouse keys etc).However it turned out not to be the case. I tried virus scan, PRAM reset, but it didn't help. Today i took it to the Apple store, they proposed to replace the keyboard. Since I am out of warranty I don't want to pay 200 euros if the problem can be solved without the replacement of the keyboard.

MacBook Pro :: Remap Eject-key To Forward Delete?

Jan 2, 2008

Is it possible to remap the Eject-key to forward delete (fn+delete) on the SR MacBook?

The Eject-key doesn't do very much for me. I would use it more often if it could unmount disk images, but I rather have a single key for forward delete if that's possible.

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard Modifier Key Remap Suddenly Not Working?

Mar 29, 2012

I am using a MacBook Pro running OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard). I use a third-party USB keyboard that is laid out (naturally) Windows-style, with the Alt keys inside (closer to the space bar than) the “Windows logo” keys. I use the Modifier Keys button in the Keyboard preference panel to remap these to the standard Mac configuration, with the Command keys on the inside and the Option keys on the outside.  

Today those modifier keys are suddenly reversed back to the default Windows layout. The Keyboard panel still shows my preferred (remapped) configuration, but it is not being honored. I have tried reverting to the default layout and then back again, I have rebooted the system, nothing works—the modifier keys are still stuck in the Windows configuration. I rely heavily on keyboard macros in my work, most of which use the modifier keys, and those keystrokes are built into my fingers as second nature. The reversed modifier keys are driving me crazy. Please help: what can I do to make the keyboard honor my settings in the Keyboard preference panel?

MacBook Pro :: Embed An Image With A Link Or A Microsoft Word Document With A Hyperlink Built Within The Document?

Feb 2, 2012

how to embed an image with a link, or embed a Microsoft Word document with a hyperlink built within the document -- not as an attachment into my email -- but where it shows as the email content when opened! Does ANYONE know the secret? Can it be done, or not? My PC clients do it all the time easily. Then I want to be able to send the embedded image/document (not as an attachment, but visable within the email when opened) to many email contacts at once, BUT the individuals receiving them DO NOT SEE the other email contacts.

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Remap The Fn Key On A Powerbook?

Mar 12, 2012

Extraordinarily, Apple designed the keyboard layout for laptops so that the function key (fn) is on the opposite side of the keyboard to the cursor keys. So if you want to use Home, End, PageUp, or PageDown, as most of us do, then you have to use two hands as the fn key - far left - is too far from the cursor keys - far right. 

Is there a way to remap the keyboard to swap the Enter and fn keys around? I rarely use Enter, but use fn a lot as described above. While on this subject, can I remap to get a forward delete, which I used more than backspace on a full size keyboard?

Windows On Mac :: Remap Keyboard In BootCamp?

May 28, 2008

I just have a quick question about Boot Camp.

Is there any way that I can remap my keyboard ONLY when I'm in BootCamp, so that it's like I'm actually on a PC? By this, I just mean that Command = Alt / Option, Alt / Option = the Windows logo key, and Control stays the same? If so, please tell me how, as it's really annoying while gaming, seeing as the games are formatted for a regular PC keyboard.

OS X :: Way To Remap Numeric Pad Or Renumber Spaces?

Oct 28, 2009

In my opinion I think the numbers in Spaces should be in the same layout as the numeric keypad on the Apple keyboard. Is there a way to renumber the spaces, so Spaces #1 would be in the lower left, not upper left?

Alternatively, is there a way to remap the Apple numeric keypad to be the same as a telephone keypad. That would make it the same as Spaces now is (for 1-9).

I wouldn't mind changing my numeric keypad's layout anyhow, as I'm much more used to the telephone-style layout than the calculator style on the numeric keypad.

How can I disable the Itunes link to it? I want it to control only Cog player.
