Jump to top of finder window in list view Desktop
Check out this annoying behavior when navigating finder windows in list view:
  1. Scroll to the bottom of a finder window with a long list of items, such as the preferences folder.
  2. Jump straight to another folder that uses list view, but with a short list of items, such your home folder.
  3. You're presented with a blank finder window and a long scroll to get back to the top of the window. Annoying!
Quick fix: Press fn-home (or just home on a full keyboard) to jump straight to the top. It's not wizardry, but it has saved me many annoying scrolls. Check out the fn-pg up, fn-pg dn and fn-end key combos while you're at it.

You're right- that is simpler! Man, they just hide these things all over the place.

dont use list view

I don't use list view except when i need to compare items, which is relatively rare. Column view is much nicer on my wide display.
