All laptops have a ‘fn’ button that is used as a modifier key for the f1…f12 buttons and usually some of the other buttons on the laptop to provide the same functionality of a full keyboard but with less keys, and they’re labelled with a different color to indicate what those buttons are. On the Mac Book Pro they aren’t. Here they are:

  • Home: Alt + arrow key up
  • End: Alt + arrow key down
  • Page Up: Cmd+arrow key up
  • Page Down: Cmd+arrow key down
  • Delete: fn + delete

note: You need to disable the keyboard shortcuts in Expose (multiple virtual desktops), because it uses the same keyboard shortcuts Cmd+Left/Right.

It was a big relief to finally find these shortcut keys, I’ve been frustrating myself trying to adjust to not having them.
