I think I've found the most secret and disappointing easter egg on Mac. Fn (Command Function Left) in Safari goes to Apple.com; does anyone know why, or when, this was added? Cmd-Fn-Up and down and right don't do anything.

I couldn't find anything on this after about 10 seconds of skim-reading on google search.

BTW I was trying to do (Shift Command Left) which selects everything to the left of the cursor.

Also noticed (Control Command Left) does some weird right-align thing.

  • Doesn't work for me. Just reloads (or seems to) my current home page. – Steve Chambers Jan 17 '18 at 0:45
  • Oh, thanks. That's what it does. I thought it was an easter egg :( – cmarangu Jan 17 '18 at 0:47
  • Fn + arrow key == home/end/pg up/down – Tetsujin Jan 17 '18 at 12:21
  • Interesting I noticed that in Keyboard viewer but did not know what it meant (the arrow keys change to different ones when you hold fn) – cmarangu Jan 17 '18 at 21:53
  • @SteveChambers I credited you for your research apple.stackexchange.com/questions/312533/… thanks again – cmarangu Jan 26 '18 at 16:27

Apparently it is a shortcut to go to your homepage and not an easter egg and does not necessarily open https://www.apple.com but I haven't changed my homepage so in my case it does.
