What does diagonal arrow key mean in MacOSX?


When I use IntelliJ on my MacOSX, it suggested one of this keyboard shortcut when "No files are open" in a project:

Now I know the first one is the "Option/Alt" key, but what is that second key suppose to be? How do I type that?

I've checked the http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/docs/IntelliJIDEA_ReferenceCard_Mac.pdf and I don't see that diagonal arrow key there.

It's the Home key (which is available on the full Mac keyboard but not available on the MacBook keyboards or the small wireless keyboard). Note that the Mac OS X 10.5+ keymap, which you can select under Settings | Keymaps, does not use the Home key.

It's worth mentioning that the home key is available on macbook/wireless keyboards if you press 'fn' + 'left arrow'.  So this key combo would be 'fn + alt/option + left arrow'.  

fn + right arrow = end
fn + up arrow = pg up
fn + down arrow = pg down
