How do you go to the end or the beginning of the text just with the screen keyboard?

As far as I know it isn’t something you can do simply. You’d have to click at the place where you want your cursor to be to place it there. It’s one of the worst parts of a mobile interface, in my experience.

@Mariah has it. It’s not a function that’s available on mobile sites.

However On Fluther if you click on the 3 vertical dot on the top right then choose Find in Page, you can search for Logout which appears at the bottom of every Fluther mobile page.

Ohh I was thinking about the function that ‘End’ performs when you’re typing. Brings your cursor to the end of the line. @Stinley‘s solution is probably the best you’ll get for going to the bottom of a page on mobile.

Okay. I’m not using tablet right now. I’ll try it tomorrow when I’ll be using the tablet. Thank you both.

Kind of another question:
How do you go to the beginning of the text on desktop? Years ago it used to be posssible to do it with the End key, if you were at the end of the text. Why not anymore?

I believe the Home key works like the End key but in reverse
