I purchased a Samsung Dreja E172 notebook last week and I can't find the combination for the Home / End function (i.e. takes cursor to the start or end of the line). Most notebooks use a FN + Arrow Left / Arrow Right combination, but this notebook uses that for the volume control. What other combinations could be possible?
Thanks very much for any suggestions.

If that laptop has a tenkey pad... Oct 6, 2008


It's a long shot (I have never seen this model around here in the US), but...

From the images of this model (E172-xxx) on the internet, it has a tenkey (numeral key) pad. If yours is the same, then Home/End keys are there (7 and 1).

German keyboard: Pos1 and Ende? Oct 6, 2008

I haven't had much luck finding your exact model/keyboard online, but does it look something like this?
That's a Samsung where FN + Arrow changes the volume, similar to your laptop. I see you're based in Germany. Do you by chance have a German keyboard? Could it simply be the "Pos1" and "Ende" keys you're looking for? Sorry if I'm being Captain Obvious hereicon_smile.gif

Thanks 7-1 Oct 6, 2008

Thanks to both of you for your help. Yes, the Dreja does have a German keyboard, but no Pos1 or Ende keys and no Home / End keys either. I tried Rie's suggestion and it worked!
FN+7 replaces the Home key
FN+1 replaces the End key

Thanks guys!
