PhpMyAdmin 4.4.10: Control key + Arrow key NOT working while inserting or editing a database table record. Fix it in SECONDS.

Amazon I use PhpMyAdmin 4.4.10. When I browse a database table and click on Edit to edit a record, I realize I cannot use Control key + Arrow key to navigate in the Value text field or text area. I can use the Arrow key alone fine, but very often I use Control + Left key or Control + Right key to move cursor quickly. What can I do to be able to use Ctrl and any arrow key while editing or inserting a table row?


First locate your WAMP folder. In my case, my WAMP folder is C:\wamp2.5.

In C:\wamp2.5\apps\phpMyAdmin-4.4.10-english\js\keyhandler.js, I did the following to enable control key + arrow key.
function onKeyDownArrowsHandler(e)
 (original code)
 (original code)
Save your change and reload PhpMyAdmin or PMA and see if it fixes the problem.

This fix will also work when you are inserting a new database table record.

If you have any questions let me know and I will do my best to help you!
