I request a top ( ^ ) link to be available on the bottom (near paging links) only on Mobile site.

It will be used when scroll down until last question in page.

It'll be useful mainly when loading 50 per page.

This isn't a duplicate for this question which is about adding it to left navigation bar

This isn't an exact duplicate for this question which is about adding it on browser, becauase my main issue is on mobile browsing

  • I assume this would mostly be useful on phones etc, which don't have easy access to the Home key. – Nathan Tuggy Oct 14 '18 at 5:08
  • @NathanTuggy you are right – user7294900 Oct 14 '18 at 5:10
  • SOX (Stack Overflow Extras), available on stackapps, has an option to enable this. – user392547 Oct 14 '18 at 5:43
  • Regarding duplicate appeal, it doesn't really matter where the link is placed. The core idea is the same: have a "back to top" link. – Shadow Keeps Social Distance Oct 14 '18 at 6:37
  • @Shadow The other question specifically asks to put it in the left nav, which is collapsed on mobile viewports, plus on desktops where the user has chosen to hide it. – Sonic the Stay-Home Hedgehog Oct 14 '18 at 7:00
  • @Sonic this question says "mainly on Mobile". It's not enough to make it non duplicate plus, pointless. Code don't understand "mainly". Either there is "back to top" link, or there isn't. So unless this question is edited to say "only in mobile device", I won't cast a reopen vote. – Shadow Keeps Social Distance Oct 14 '18 at 7:10
  • @ShadowWizard update question for mobile only – user7294900 Oct 14 '18 at 7:14
  • Cheers, reopened it. – Shadow Keeps Social Distance Oct 14 '18 at 7:17

On iOS, you can just tap the status bar and the screen will scroll to the top. This works in surprisingly many apps, including Safari, Chrome, and also the Stack Exchange mobile app.

    Mobile app isn't relevant, question is about using a browser on mobile device, as far as I can see. Does this trick work with Chrome too? Think it's the most popular non-builtin browser. – Shadow Keeps Social Distance Oct 14 '18 at 9:42
  • Yeah, you have to do development work to disable this feature, so most apps support it, including Chrome. – Glorfindel Oct 14 '18 at 9:45
