Numbers - moving to end of row/column

by cruddell001 / February 25, 2011 1:30 AM PST

In Excel for Mac I can easily move to the end/beginning of a row/column using the command+arrow-keys as a shortcut. However, I haven't found a similar keyboard shortcut in Numbers for iWork. Does anyone know of a way to do this?

For columns: the Home (Fn-Left Arrow) and End (Fn-RightArrow) keys take you to the top and bottom of the column your cursor is in but, unlike Excel, the focus remains on the existing cell. Once the top/bottom of the column is visible, holding the shift key down while selecting that top (or bottom) cell selects everything from the focus cell to that top/bottom cell.

For rows: I haven't yet found an easy way to move to the start/end of a row. Maybe Numbers isn't really built for large datasets. It is probably more of a list manager (unfortunately).

Within Numbers, selecting Help>Keyboard Shortcuts gives a list of shortcuts.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
