    Thank you for the response, and sorry for my late response. I need the hot keys to work even when I do not have iTunes as the 'active' window. If I am in another application, the hot keys no longer work, neither do my media keys. That's what I need a remedy to. Thanks!

Hotkey for printer settings

Hotkeys provide keyboard shortcuts for common tasks. Some applications lose focus or disappear when you click away or move your cursor on the screen. To capture the active window, use Snagit's hotkeys.
Hotkeys also allow you to:
  • Quickly switch between commonly-used profiles.
  • Maintain the cursor's position on the screen.
  • Take captures without interacting with the Snagit interface.

Rotate screen back to horizotal

Try pressing Ctrl + Alt + UP Arrow Key, or try Ctrl + Alt + and a different Arrow Key.

If that does not work: Right-click on empty Desktop > Graphics Options > Rotation.

Press "Ctrl-Alt" and an arrow key (left, right, up or down) to rotate the screen.
Continue pressing the hotkeys and arrow keys until you reach the desired rotation. This works with most video drivers on Windows XP. If it doesn't,

Click "Start," then "Control Panel," then "Display," then the "Settings" tab. Click the "Advanced" button. Check for an "Orientation" option. Select your desired orientation.

hope this helps

Hi. I my fn keys no longer work in the sony vaio FS285B

The problem is that the Fn Hotkey Utility breaks when XP SP2 or some other patch goes on. You can fix this by using the Vaio Recovery Wizard. Click on it, then Proceed With System Recovery, Custom Recovery, Application Recovery. Select HotKey Utility then Repair. It takes a reboot and works after that.

This is a skill you will get good at with a Vaio as it seems that every driver update or patch from Microsoft will break something.

I hope this helps!
