    Sound and Brightness Keys are not working
    Hello,

    The sound and the brightness keys on my MacBook are not working.

    When I check the box in System preferences > Keyboard and Mouse > "Use all F1 F2...", it works fins as "F" button but if I uncheck, these are not working.

    Wondering whats wrong !. Could you please advise?

    Many thanks,
    SG

    With the box unchecked, pressing the fn key and the F12 key, I can see all the widgets.

    fn+F11 key - the active window moves aside.

    Fn+f1 and Fn+f2 key does not show any activity.
