Thanks, I'm confused as to what to tell my colleges.

Hmmm - I just tried in FF, Chrome, IE11, and Edge and 'home' works as I would expect ('end' as well).

Thank you, what troubles me is that I'm being told that it no longer works that way in Browsers.

The 'home' key has always worked well for me (outside of AT). I thought when I tested with VO the home key worked as well.

As a JAWS and NVDA user, I've always used control + home to get to the top of a page in Browsers. I also thought that keystroke also worked outside of Assistive Technology.

That assumption apparently is not true. So, I've been looking on different sites for consistent keystrokes to get to the top of the page. What am I missing?
