It's so hard to scroll

Joke, of course; rather than hard, it's more of a pain in the arse to scroll from the bottom of the page to the top when I just want to get on with things. So, as with:

is there any possibility of placing a Logout link at the bottom of each forum page? Please don't tell me the software comes 'as is' and doesn't allow for that.

Re: It's so hard to scroll

Use the Home and End keys on your keyboard - I actually have them programmed into two of my mouse keys

Re: It's so hard to scroll

Aaaargh!  I'm always muttering to myself about having to scroll back to the top but I do know about the home key (now that I've been reminded).  Crazy Thanks Oldjim!  Smiley

Ah! Thanks so much for that. You'd think after years of using a computer I'd know that.  Grin

Re: It's so hard to scroll

I make use of "auto-scroll" (where you push the middle button in and then move the cursor up or down). I believe it's enabled by default in all the main browsers on Windows. The Linux build of Firefox seems to need it turning on.

Re: It's so hard to scroll

On iMac, to scroll down,   just tap the space bar.
And                  Shift + Space bar scrolls up.
Both, a browser window page at a time.
Most of the time I just stroke my Magic Mouse, literally !
A quick flick usually takes me to top or bottom of a page.

It may be the same on a PC ?

Home and End keys do exactly that.

Re: It's so hard to scroll

It is but I wasn't aware of it  Embarrassed
Note that scroll up is space bar plus shift on Windows
