iMac El Capitan How to mimic Ctrl+Home (PC keyboard)

iMac has a mini wireless keyboard.
No Home and End keys.

I found into Calibre Viewer the params to customize the shortcuts.
So I can mimic the Ctrl+Home and Ctrl End equivalent to PC world.

I did not find how to customize shortcuts into the calibre main page.
The idea is to send the cursor at the top/bottom in one shoot.

Under El Capitan, fn+Down Arrow jumps one page.
And Apple+Down Arrow does not jump to the end.

Any solution ? TIA

I can't find anything either - if they were anywhere they'd be in Preferences->Keyboard->Miscellaneous.

Ctrl+← and Ctrl+→ should do Home and End but...

There's a OSX gadget called DoubleCommand that enables some Windows/Linux-like keyboard mapping

Thank you.

AFAIK, I think I went there. Not quite sure, maybe I saw theses params first then I jumped to Viewer and I did not came back to main GUI.

I am not in front of the Mac, I 'll check next Week-End.

I am a bit cold with gadgets, I had bad misadventures. I favour the original internal params.

Best regards

Actually, in the GUI main page the param Advanced |Keyboard | Miscellanous does not display option to personnalize the shortcut Jump to Home/End as it appears in the Viewer.

Strangely when I display the whole list as icons,
the command fn + Home send the cursor to the top
and
the command fn + End send the cursor to the bottom
It works fine as expected.

This does not work with the detailled list mode. Fn + End jump down one page.

It looks like a Calibre's small bug, but I don't want to use this word before some Mac/Calibre users can confirm this strange behavior.

Mac OS X and Calibre v:2.82

If so, I will add a request to support.

I tested it on my iMac (which is the only Apple machine I have) and Pressing Fn + Cmd + left/right arrow keys works the same as pressing Cmd + Home/End i.e. it goes to the first/last book in the book list

Thank you for your help.

Yes it works well in both modes, detailled listing and icons.

I am not an usual Mac user.
The first thing I did was Fn + Left/Right arrows and it was OK in icon mode.
So I did the same in detailled list.

As it is not a Cal reserved command, I have got an unpredictable result.

Best regards
