Are you simultaneously pressing the Fn key while pressing the F1 thru F12 keys?

Corel 8 will not work in windows 7


Corel Photopaint 8 will not work under Windows8, or Windows 8.1 either.



Corel advertises their CorelDRAWx7 graphics suite as being functional under Windows8, but I have to say... I have had no luck getting THAT to work under Windows8, EITHER. It installs just fine, and then when you go to open it, it hangs on the interface initialization. Literally.. hangs. Oh. And you CANNOT kill the process from the task manager, either.



I\'m very glad that I only was trying the Trial version, and didn\'t actually shell out $549 for the full program!!!! I have been using Photopaint-8 for about ten years. It\'s a very powerful editor, it\'s a wonderful program, and the ONLY reason I have to stop using it is because of my OS??? That annoys me.



So does installing a program that a company says "Works under WIndows 8" and then finding out that it WILL NOT WORK UNDER WINDOWS 8.



So don\'t waste your money on the CorelDraw suites, either, if you are stuck with Windows8. They won\'t work under the damnable OS, EITHER.



I have YET to find a freaking image editor that WILL work under this farking OS that is actually fully functional, and not missing severe levels of functionality. Congratulations, Microsoft, on pissing off artists everywhere, and then coupling that with making it impossible for us to DOWNGRADE your USELESS OS.



Don\'t waste your money on ANY of Corel\'s products until they actually become STABLE under Windows 8, folks. And I really hate saying that, because I love their products. But if they wont\' work under the OS that Microsoft has purposely and intentionally made it impossible to downgrade from, then it\'s not worth the money to buy the products...

During gameplay i am requested to use a number from f1 - f12 and the f1 through f12 are occupied by keys that change the laptop settings. how do i move the settings or get rid of them?



Function keys(F1-F12) are hard coded and cannot be changed.
Some keys simply just never get to Windows. In the case of most Fn keys, they are interpretted by the hardware and never get passed onto the OS, no matter how they appear to work... if Windows doesn't see the key, there's no way for the key to be remapped by Windows.

If your gameplay is asking for a Function key -, it must be written in the software.
You may need to call the software vendor.



If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

How use the functions key F1 to F12


Hi


In your samsung laptop you'll be able to see a Fn key on the left to windows key and space bar, press that along with the any keys from F1 to F12 and it will function normally.

eg-- Fn key + F1 key will open up windows help (as it happens in normal systems when we press F1 key)

Function keys F1 thru F12 don't work


Keyboard might have gone bad. Try hooking up a external keyboard and see if they work. If they don't then you have a motherboard issue. If they do then it is a keyboard issue. If you lucky it is just a keyboard then you can get one here for 20 bucks.
