    It works for me on Windows 7, when I do the following:

    (Using the example from the article to search for google cookies) When I do a search for google, that automatically selects the first individual google cookie. When I press shift + end the entire list is highlighted (you would then click the "Remove selected" button to delete the highlighted cookies). I also tried it with yahoo cookies and that also works.

    If that doesn't work for you on Windows 10 you should probably ask another Windows 10 user to confirm and then either remove that tip or don't show it for win10.

    I tried " shift + end " ;

    • firefox 64bit version in windows 10 64-bit
    • firefox 32bit version in windows 10 64-bit

    in this two different computer, it does not working. So, tip is hidden for win 10.

    if anyone try and working for him, please edit the article.

    Thanks. I see that you marked the tip {for win}{for not win10} so that it doesn't show for Mac, Linux or Windows 10. Not sure if that's what you meant but I think it's fine to do that. I approved your revision and marked it ready to localize. If a Mac or Linux user can confirm that it works for them we can come back and re-edit the article.

    This smells like a Windows 10 bug - such dialogs should still be able to use Shift+End, like in previous versions. Any chance it would be caused by the notorious 1703 update, i.e. what happens in Win 10 without it, or Win 8?

    Side note: the revision also removed the workaround with breaks preventing text to lay on top of images in numbered lists (bug 1105227).

    The images in this article use the #; markup described in the article How to place images in an article. See bug 1105227 comment 14. That article needs updating if there's a better way to do it.

    It is just for info, also because OmTi may not be aware of it. That info was also posted in one of the referred article’s discussions. Feel free to update the article though if you like.

    Tonnes and AliceWyman,

    in my approved revision line 16: [[ #;{for win}[[Image:Privacy - show cookies - remove selected - firefox 38]]< br >{/for}{for win}{for not win10}Tip: Select the first cookie and press {key Shift + End} to select all the cookies in the list.{/for}{/for} ]]

    I used #; like line 13 (last revision by Chris_Ilias). but I needed "< br >" after picture if I didnot use < br > , because of {for not win 10} it breaks the number after pic (preview content for win10 ) deleting #; and go back it to line 15 (Tip) is showing near the pic without using < br > after pic. but now I am testing it with < br > after pic. it is okey for: line 15: [[# Select the cookie(s) in the list to remove and click {button Remove Selected}.{for win}[[Image:Privacy - show cookies - remove selected - firefox 38]]{/for}< br >{for win}{for not win10}Tip: Select the first cookie and press {key Shift + End} to select all the cookies in the list.{/for}{/for}]]

    but I can't see any difference (in preview content) between my approved revision and "my line 15 edit" (above)


    Also I'm downloading ubuntu-17.04-desktop-i386 for testing Shift+End issue for linux. If I can trying it in virtualbox I will write the test result (if anyone will not test it for linux before me). If I can not please feel free the edit my revision both in line 16 #; and {for win} 'for tip.

    I had tested for linux (ubuntu-17.04-desktop-i386 with using Oracle Vm Virtualbox) Shift+End is not working for me. Can anyone test it also for mac ?

    My husband's iMac (OS X 10.6.8) with the wireless keyboard that came with it doesn't even have an END key. Looks like the END key is also missing on MacBook keyboards based on what I found here: http://www.macworld.co.uk/how-to/mac/find-home-end-buttons-on-mac-3618360/ http://osxdaily.com/2015/06/17/home-end-button-mac-keyboard-functions/
