Dear Benno

Thanks for you quick reply.
I'm using version 3.2 on Debian 10.

I just tested this in Chrome's SSH client and it sure works!
But not in puTTY (or KiTTY,  which I normally user, a fork of puTTY).

I guess I have to find a new Windows SSH client.

Sorry for the noise ;-)

Which version of nano are you using?  Because ^Home and ^End are bound
by default since 2.8.1, and ought to be working on most terminals since
2.8.2.  (There may be some terminals that swallow ^Home and ^End for
their own use, in which case nano never sees the keystroke.)

Nano does not support rebinding any of the cursor movement keys.  They
have a fixed meaning.  But since nano-2.8.1 the Ctrl+Home and Ctrl+End
keystrokes already do what you want them to do.
