In Windows and Ubuntu one can move the cursor to the end of the next word in text by pressing ctrl+ left or ctrl+right.
What's the equivalent of this on the Mac?
option + left and option + right
This is a late return from an outlying precinct on this question, but on my 2014 MacBook Pro using Word 2011, I stumbled on to how to move to the beginning and the end using "fn" + option + Left arrow, and Rt arrow respectively.
These combinations also work for the Word for Mac Preview v 15.8.
It's really quite simple: just us Command + right or left.
