What do the symbols mean above the fn keys on my laptop


The use of this fn button is simple. It is the short form of function button.

This buttons represent different function for different manufacturers. Since you're not giving much details, here i'll give the use generally.

The function button acts the same way as shift button. The Fn button need to be pressed TOGETHER with other button in order to work. Lenovo colored their Fn and the buttons responsible for certain action in orange so, if you press the Fn and one of the buttons available, it will act as it supposed to act.

Different manufacturers design it differently, so don't be afraid to explore as in my experience, exploring the Fn button can do no harm to you laptop or PC. p.s / unless you're hitting the connect projector only button and the screen goes blank and you freaked out, then it's something else. Keep calm when exploring. When something weird happens, restart.

What is fn button


"fn" is short for Function. It depends on the manufacture WHAT they will allow you to access vea the Function Button.. Most often there are color coded keys that you hold the fn down to get the additional functionalitys out of those keys. Many manufactures use fn keys for multimedia or screen settings, WiFi radio ON/OFF controls, etc.

I want to know how to use the function button


The function button, or FN button, is used just like the shift key or ctrl key. Hold the FN button down and press the key with the pre programmed function you desire to use. For instance, on an HP 1245 the function or short cut key to put the computer in sleep mode is FN+F5. The Keys with functions have that feature indicated by a symbol for the function in a squared circle. Most of these are your F keys at the very top row of the keyboard. Some are on the number pad keys.

Good day,the model of my laptop is U400 Sattelite, my problem is the functions buttons near the power on/off are not functioning. What will i do? Thanks.


Hellocl_am21, when you use the "Function Buttons;" in some systems you have to use a [FN] button, pressing it at the same time to perform the correct action. The FN button may be located at the bottom of the "Keyboard" near the {Windows} button, it may be in a different area, check to see. Press the FN button along with the function button you want to use, and it should work? Thanks for your post, paul7of9

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
