Make keys behave like Windows on MacOS

Make keys behave like Windows on MacOS

I tried, but failed for Control Arrow Keys. Anyway I decided drop this idea, because it is a partial solution, the Control Arrow Keys doesn't work.


Create a file ~/Library/KeyBindings/DefaultKeyBinding.dict has following contents

  "\UF729"  = moveToBeginningOfLine:; // home
  "\UF72B"  = moveToEndOfLine:; // end
  "$\UF729" = moveToBeginningOfLineAndModifySelection:; // shift+home
  "$\UF72B" = moveToEndOfLineAndModifySelection:; // shift+end
  "^\UF729" = moveToBeginningOfDocument:; // ctrl+home
  "^\UF72B" = moveToEndOfDocument:; // ctrl+end
  "^$\UF729" = moveToBeginningOfDocumentAndModifySelection:; // ctrl+shift+home
  "^$\UF72B" = moveToEndOfDocumentAndModifySelection:; // ctrl+shift+end
  "^\UF702" = "moveWordBackward:"; // ctrl+leftarrow
  "^\UF703" = "moveWordForward:"; // ctrl+rightarrow
  "^$\UF702" = "moveWordBackwardAndModifySelection:"; // shift+ctrl+leftarrow
  "^$\UF703" = "moveWordForwardAndModifySelection:"; // shift+ctrl+rightarrow

Alternatively, change Line to Paragraph, depending on your prefers.
