The Fn or function key is used with the keyes that have small boxed symbols, generally the top row of keys, which include the function key. Using this function key (Fn Key) in combination with one of the top row keys will make it control another function. For example many F7 and F8 keys will control the light level on the lcd screen. If you push the function key along with the F7 key, the lcd display will get darker. If you use the Fn key with the F8 key, the display will get brighter. The key functions and symbols may be different on different keyboards.

Hopefully, this explanation will answer your question.

Disable fn key


Restart your laptop and enter the BIOS setup (F1, F2, F10 keys are common) and look for an option to 'use fn keys without fn button' or something like that.

I can't turn the fn key off


The Fn key (also known as the Function key) is a feature found on most laptop computers. The Fn key allows keys on a laptop computer's keyboard to serve more than one function, a clever way of increasing the utility of the keyboard when space is limited. Dell laptops make good use of the Fn key, and if you own a Dell laptop, you should be aware of where the key is and how to use it.

Open your laptop and turn it on. Then locate the Fn key. It is located on the lower left side of the keyboard, next to the Ctrl key. Press and release the Fn key. Now examine the keyboard carefully. You'll notice that many of the keys have icons or letters and numbers printed in blue upon them. These keys and functions are operated when the Fn key is enabled, as you've just done. Test it out by looking at the lower right side of the keyboard. You'll see two keys with small blue "sun" icons. These control the brightness of the screen. Press the lower one several times and you'll see the screen darken. Press the upper one. The screen brightens. Press and release the Fn key again. Now try using the brightness keys. The screen brightness will not change. You've turned off the Fn key.

I need to know what the keys f1-f12 keys usage.


The uses for the function (f1-f12) keys varies based on which program you have open at the time. Different programs use them for different things.

However, your computer also has some default uses for these keys when combined with pressing the fn (function) key.

fn + f1 locks computer

fn + f2 changes our power use profile

fn + f3 puts the computer to sleep

fn + f4 puts the computer into hibernation mode

fn + f5 changes the display/output mode

fn + f6 decreases the screen brightness

fn + f7 increases the screen brightness

fn + f8 enables/disables wireless connections

fn + f9 enables/disables the touch pad

fn + f10 turns the cursor overlay on/off

fn + f11 turns the numeric overlay on/off

fn + f12 turns scroll lock on/off

What is the fn key


The fn key is the function key. I am sure that helps a ton. The fn key works like a shift key, changing the buttons marked fn, like volume, screen brightness, etc. The use is that you press and hold the function key, and press teh function button and then release both.
Common uses are to turn off the mousepad, while typing, and to set screen brightness while under battery....

Im having trouble figuring out how to use the fn key on my keyboard


Just like a shift key selects the upper case character for a key, the fn key selects whatever is printed on the other keys in the same color used for the letters "fn." You would hold down the fn key, then press the key labeled with the desired secondary function, and let go of both keys.
