    Gesture to Scroll to top/bottom


    I've been sorely missing some sort of gesture to be able to scroll automatically to the top or bottom of any page in IE10. It would be really helpful when browsing the forums.

    Can anyone think of a way (or is there one already) to gesture to get back to the top so that you don't have to flick the screen repeatedly to scroll to top?

    Does it work if you just hit the scroll bar on the keyboard ?

    I don't know what you would do with a purely touch device.

    I dont know if there is an app for windows 7 or 8 internet explorer gestures to page up / down and page top / bottom . For my ipad it has page top plus others app from cydia . What i did for my Vpad10 tablet was just resize the scrollbar very wide to fit my finger , that way i can scroll up / down easier without missing touching the scrolling bar , plus i can tap the space on the vertical scrollbar to move one page up / down quickly . Unless someone can make an app for things like this , then we've got no choice right now .

    Yes, I guess you could make the srollbars much fatter . I do that anyway - and I am not using touch.

    That is one of the things they have taken out of win8.

    You can do it via the registry.

    The up and down arrow keys will scroll the page up and down slowly.
    Page Up and Page Down keys will do it too and faster.
    Holding down the Page Up key should do what you want.

    EDIT: lol, just realized what section I was in.
    Not what you were looking for but its one way to do it on a keyboard.

    I missed the same feature. I used TouchMe Gesture Studio (TouchMe Gesture Studio app for Windows in the Windows Store) and mapped 2 Finger Tip Tap Right to CTRL-Home - this shortcut scrolls to top of page. And 2 Finger Tip Tap Left to CRTL-End to scroll to bottom.

    Can you just touch and hold the top or bottom of the scroll bar on the page?

Bill Gates suggested in an interview with CNet that the Windows group is considering support for 3D gesture recognition. Gestures would be 3D movements that could be sensed by special 3D depth sensing cameras. There are other ways to detect user movements, but 3D cameras are coming down in price...
