PC Internet Browser scrolling
 
If one scrolls down to the bottom of a long browser page and wants to get back to the top of the page one has to scroll back. Why cant they have like a "button" at the top of the page that one can just click on and it takes one straight back to the top without having to scroll?

On Chrome I have activated this " home button " but it does not take me back to the top of the page I am using but only back to the " start side ". On my keyboard there is also a home button but it only does the same thing.

How fing dumb is this Chrome browser!

I have not activated or deactivated anything and am using Chrome at the moment. The Home button takes me to the top of the page except when in a text field, in this case it takes me to the beginning of the line.
By default it is usually active.

With me it only goes back to my Chrome Apps start side.

Does yours go back to the top on every web page?

LOL, that is to be done as code on a website, totally irrelevant for your "problem"

Just check your settings for keyboard functions/shortcuts.
(And check if you indeed are pressing the proper button on your keyboard)

If you are on OSX it is "fn" in combination with the left and right arrow to jump up and down.

Get a new PC. Yours is obviously broken beyond repair. Although... and I may just be grasping at straws here... perhaps the problem lies between keyboard and chair. So, do you have the boxes your PC came in?

Ah thanks it works on PC. But why not have it in the browser itself?

I doubt you're pressing the right key. You need the Home key. The one marked "Home".

In any case, you don't need to scroll all the way from the bottom of a page back to the top. You can simply click on the scroll bar at the right of the screen and drag it to the top. It's a one-second operation. Hardly taxing, or deserving of a multi-post thread on EF.

Theres an End key on my keyboard, I pressed it and this thread didn't end, is there any other way to make it go away?
