Add Button to Scroll to Top of Long Web Pages

SUMMARY: Access the menu and search boxes at the top of long webpages browsed in Google Chrome with this shortcut button.

When browsing a large web page such as a Wikipedia article or a list of Facebook posts in Google Chrome, if you need to jump back to the top of the page to use the site's menu, search features, or sign-in boxes, does scrolling take too much time?

While pressing Ctrl + Home immediately jumps to the top of the current web page, not everyone remembers this keyboard shortcut. With the "Scroll to Top" extension, you can add to Google Chrome's toolbar a red up-arrow that performs this same feat.

Using the "Scroll to Top" extension in Google Chrome on a Wikipedia entry

1. From Google Chrome, visit the "Scroll to Top" page.

2. Click the "Free" button.

3. The "Confirm New Extension" dialog appears. Read the warnings, then click "Add" if you still want to install the extension.
