    F Key problem with Wired keyboard w/o numeric keypad
    Hi,

    I just bought this keyboard and have found the fkey mapping is all scrambled. ie if I hit the volume up button, the dashboard pops up and etc.

    Does anyone know if/how this can be fixed?

    Have a look in the System Preferences for Keyboard and make sure the tick box that says "Use F1, F2 etc keys as standard function keys" is NOT checked.

    By default F12 (also the volume up key) was dashboard prior to these new keyboards we have now.

    Thanks aj-uk.

    Tried it but unfortunately didn't do the trick. Any thing else I can try?

    Basically it doesn't seem to be recognising the modifier FN key.

    Maybe try a software update to see if you have the latest firmware for your keyboard?
