Hello all,

I was playing with some keyboard settings on my relatively new macbook(2 mos.). I'm not sure if something I did caused it, but, all of a sudden, I can't use my function keys anymore. I can't brighten the screen or adjust the volume with the keys anymore.

In System Preferences, I tried to find what I could have done, but no luck. I did restore the defaults for the keyboard shortcuts hoping... but no.

Is it something I could have done? Could someone help me bring them back?

Thanks in advance

LJ

In Preferences->Keyboard and Mouse, go to the kyboard tab and toggle the Use F1-F12 keys to control software features - it sounds like you turned it on.

I judge you when you use poor grammar.

...thanks, it's resolved now.

I did a search before posting, but I only noticed the relevant posts after I had posted, then I was trying to delete my post...

You're just too fast.
