I know that gg and G can move the cursor to the top and bottom of the file. But is there a way to jump to the top or bottom of the visible window?


Type H (capital H) to move to the top of the screen.

Type L (capital L) to move to the bottom of the screen.

    By the way, M (capital M) to move to the middle of the screen. – Caco Jun 12 '19 at 12:09

    Since j moves down and k moves up, it's a little awkward that J and K don't make these top/bottom movements. Is there a mnemonic to remember these by, similar to M for "middle" like @Caco points out? – user1717828 Mar 4 '20 at 3:02

    @user1717828 H for High, L for Low. – 200_success Mar 4 '20 at 4:09
