By default, when pressing left/right cursor keys, Vim will not move to the previous/next line after reaching first/last character in the line. This can be quite annoying for new users. Fortunately this behaviour can be easily changed by putting this in your ~/.vimrc file:

By default, when pressing left/right cursor keys, Vim will not move to the previous/next line after reaching first/last character in the line. This can be quite annoying for new users. Fortunately this behaviour can be easily changed by putting this in your ~/.vimrc file:

set whichwrap=<,>,h,l,[,]

This causes the cursorkeys, as well as h and l, to wrap, when used at beginning and end of lines (the <> and [] differ in that <> are the cursorkeys used in normal and visual mode, and the [] are the cursorkeys in insert mode).
