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

I use MacBook Pro (OS X version 10.5.8) in combination with LCD TV, wireless mouse and new Apple wireless keyboard. The problem is that function keys of the wireless keyboard do not respond in a same way...


Make sure to run all available software updates as there's probably a firmware update for your keyboard you need to download.

If there isn't or the problem persists afterwards, you'll need to go into Apple Menu > System Preferences > Keyboard and Mouse > Keyboard and uncheck 'Use all F1, F2 etc. keys as standard function keys.'

Good luck!

I have a dell inspiron 1564. To use the f1-f12 functions require me to first hit the FN button. How do I reverse this so that i can use f1-f12 by hitting them directly and have the current commands...


You can change it so you don't have to use the FN key by going into the settings while you computer is booting.

Reboot your computer
Keep hitting F2 until a greay and blue settings screen comes up
Choose the Advanced menu
Use your arrow keys to go down and select 'Function Key Behavior'
Hit enter
Select 'Function Key First'
Hit enter
Choose to Save and Exit (usually F10)

Should fix it up.

Gateway laptop mouse not responding


In the rows above your Function keys (F1-F12) you should see some icons above F7-F12 (these are capacitive touch keys). If you see one with a square with a hand pointing with a plus sign, and it's red, just touch it. It's a touch key to disable your touchpad.

F keys suddenly not working


The "F mode" button toggles on and off the F keys. If you press it (accidentally) as I did, the keys will no longer function.

Simply press the "F mode" key again (it is directly above the "End->" key between F12 and Insert on this model keyboard) and functionality will be restored.

Keyboard


Is there an F-Lock or function lock key on the keyboard? If there is it needs to be on for the F keys to work as proper F keys.
