The [FN] key is the function key for accessing special features that are pre programmed into the key board. I am not sure if they will assist you in typing portuguese as most deal with brightness, monitor selection, cd start and stop and such, at least on my key board they do. Typically the functions they provide are indicated by symbols that are boxed or circled on the normal keys.

My Satellite A100 laptop has no numerric key pad so how can I type special characters?


you should have numbers on the keyboard which you can access using the Fn button... you can also use these without the FN button by htting the NumLock button, then use as normal keypad....
other that that try using the Alt button and the Fn with the corresponding digits.So hold down Alt, FN and tap the corresponding digits/letters on the keyboard.

If you need to use a numpad a lot, then can purchase a USB numpad - often included with USB kits from gadget shops.

You state to hold the fn, and hit the power button.....OK, whats the ( fn ) key ?


The Fn key is a key found usually on the keyboards of portable computers (laptops, netbooks etc) and sometimes on desktop type keyboards.

It is a key usually marked with a blue coloured "Fn" and is located somewhere on the bottom left row of keys.

The Fn key is used in combination with other keys that have (usually) blue letters or icons on them to activate the special functions (Fn) on these keys.

For example, on the laptop I'm writing this on; If I press F5 the computer would perform the action my software has normally assigned to F5. If however I press the Fn button and F5, the computers internal function for decreasing screen brightness is invoked.

Different computer makes have different assignment to their keyboard Fn so you can't generally say press Fn+F5 to decrease screen brightness, it might be assigned to something else, volume or sleep-mode or even nothing. The "blue" text or icon will give an indication of what it will do.

Hope this helps explain the Fn key ;)

Can`t figure out keyboard on acer aspire one, blue numbers and letters etc Karl


blue number etc are functions that are connected to the blue fn button in the left hand corner.
press and hold the blue fn button and at the some time one of the other buttons.
eg volume + or - for volume up and down or the moon shape for hibernate, or the sun to change the screen brightness,antenna button to switch on and of your bluetoot or wifi, or the screen button to switch on and off your external monitor port on the back etc. the blue number are your numeric keypad like on a normal keyboard this can be used in the same way by holding the blue fn button down at the same time.

How do i access the function keys on the studio 17


I do not use studio but I do use Dell Inspiron.

In order to access the function keys look for a unique button on your keyboard. In my laptop its "Fn" its colored blue and the function buttons are also colored blue(they are underneath some other buttons), so if I want to access the functions button I have to hold the FN button and then press the switch that also has the function button.

For example:
1. the button "Q" has "F1" under it
2. So I have to hold FN and then press Q to access F1

This should be similar to your laptop

Keypad


If your keyboard features a special key "Fn" Do this: Press Alt + Fn or Fn + Caps lock. If it does not apply....you should have a special that helps you activate special fuctions noted on your keyboard. You have to find that key. Holding it down type the problematic keys. You will get it right.
