Hello Ivo,

I'd like to add 2 custom buttons: Scroll to top/bottom edge (executing the commands displayed when right-clicking on the Scroll bar).
Could you please let me know the code?

Thank you for your kindness.

You want toolbar buttons to mimic the home/end buttons on your keyboard?
Btw if you hold shift, you can click anywhere on the scrollbar and instantly go to that point (In-case you didn't know :)

as for your request, one solution would be to install autohotkey and create a script that forces the home/end keys to be pressed when the script is run, and linking to your script in classic explorers toolbar, for each button.

Thank you Jcee. I appreciate it.

Is this the only option?
Can't I use Explorer's built-in 'Top Edge'?

Not possible, sorry. Your best option is the right-click on the scrollbar.

In case you did install the freeware AutoHotkey, paste this into Notepad and save as 'Scroll to bottom.ahk' or anything you want and create a toolbar button for it.

Code:
#NoTrayIcon
#Persistent
#SingleInstance, Force
#IfWinActive ahk_class CabinetWClass
Send, {End}


You can also right click the saved AHK and compile as EXE. Change End to Home for 'Scroll to top.ahk'.

Thank you GauravK. It's really kind of you.

I've compiled the file, and it works perfectly.
May I ask why you've added the line '#Persistent'? I'd actually prefer to terminate the process once it's executed.

My bad, persistent is not required here. I may have copy-pasted it from my other scripts which run constantly in the background.

I second the request for a possibility to switch on special "Home" and "End" arrows in horizontal and vertical scroll bars.

Yes, it's possible to go there by shift-clicking the ends of the bars, but I often miss just simple-clicking these additional arrows when I'm in a sequence of fast-paced mouse clicks in folders containing thousands of files.

I remember that I once had a system plug-in for Apple Mac System 7 exactly producing these arrows. I can't remember its name, but it was VERY useful feature.

@Blotto, try downloading the AutoHotkey compiled EXE scripts attached to this post. You can add these to your Classic Explorer toolbar.
