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 left and right arrow keys, as well as h and l, to wrap when used at beginning or end of lines. ( < > are the cursor keys used in normal and visual mode, and [ ] are the cursor keys in insert mode).
