Is there really no "Back to top" widget for Opera?

I have a Firefox add-on which is accessed via the right-click menu, and a super Chrome floating arrow, but I can't find anything for Opera despite searching with a variety of terms. I've been looking for years, the absence of "Go/Back to top" is discouraging me from using Opera, my mouse finger gets quite sore with all that scrolling :'(

I do hope someone can point me to an appropriate widget.

Hello scyllabub:

Welcome to WebmasterWorld. Press the "Home" key on your keyboard to go to the TOP of the page. Press the "End" key on your keyboard to go to the BOTTOM of the page.

Enjoy...

Oh my goodness, WG, I feel such a fool! All these years of using PCs and I've hardly ever used those keys except when typing. There'll be no stopping me now ;-D

Hello scyllabub:

If you like the HOME and END keys, then you will love the mouse scroll wheel shortcuts. Press down and release the scroll wheel to activate 4-way scrolling within the web page canvas area. Press down and release the scroll wheel again to deactivate 4-way scrolling. Hold the Ctrl key down while rolling the mouse scroll wheel to zoom in and zoom out. Yes there is more, much more. All without needing to install add-ons, plug-ins or widgets. Please see the opera help pages for additional information. [help.opera.com ]

Enjoy...

I'm very familiar with zooming, but as for Press down and release the scroll wheel to activate 4-way scrolling within the web page canvas area, that doesn't work for me - I just get a round button symbol on the page and can slide the mouse to travel up and down the page without touching the wheel, which I was already aware of.

I have W7 64-bit, if that makes any difference.

I'm really happy now that I've got my top and bottom working *eek* ;-)

Thank you for the tips!
