File Start And End


CTL+W - File Start
CTL+Z - File End


These commands place the cursor non-destructively at the beginning or end of the file.

  • File start - positions the cursor on the very first character, as if the Editor had just been entered.

  • File end - places the cursor at the end of the file. The screen displays the last line of the file and puts the cursor on the second text line of the screen.


Very useful for adding text to a file.
