  1. my f-keys are doing wrong things


    Normally I have the function keys f6,f7,f7 to control volume but for some reason now they simply don't work, I never used to need to hold down the fn key and when I do it still doesn't work. The keys themselves are still functional. It just seems as though they do different things now.

    For example when I press down f6 which would usually mute the speakers it instead does the equivalent of having pressed tab.


    But as I'm writing this I have just noticed all my function keys do different things. Another example is when I press f3 which normally increases the screen's brightness it does the equivalent of ctrl+f


    I'm not sure what would have reassigned the functions of my function keys but I want to know how I can fix it please.


    Edit: I just tried all the function keys and quite a lot of them had no noticeable affect:

    f1 still opens help

    f2 ?

    f3 ctrl+f

    f4 ?

    f5 still reloads the page

    f6 tab

    f7 ?

    f8 ?

    f9 ?

    f10 seems to highlight my tab's options bar

    f11 still goes full screen

    f12 opens page source code

    :)

    • Log on as administrator or as a member of the Administrators group.

    How do I uninstall F-Secure

    How do you know its F-Secure that is using the Data ? Which phone do you have ? If there are any IM / WhatsApp like applications installed..they may be the real culprits..
