Hi! I hope this is the right place to post this question.

My 10 month old daughter started playing with the keys on my MacBook and some how was able to mess up all of the function keys. How do I reset them? Currently, I can't do things like access the volume because of this.

I'd appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you!!!!!

System Preferences > Keyboard. Under the keyboard tab, check to make sure that the "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys" checkbox is unchecked.
