  2. New laptop FN keys not working [Solved]

    Ummm, that is normal - depending on the function you are doing (assuming I understand what you are saying).

    On a notebook, the Fn key is like a shift key that switches in a different set of functions for the F-Keys.

    For example, in Windows pressing the F5 key typically refreshes the display. In File Explorer, it will refresh the displayed files. In a browser, it will refresh (reload) the webpage. But pressing Fn + F5 does something different, depending on your notebook. On my Toshiba notebook, if I hold down the Fn key and press F5, it switches the video output of my notebook between the notebook monitor, a connected external monitor, or both.
     
  3. No effect upon pressing <fn> and a function key

    I have an ASUS laptop, K52JC, it used to perform certain function when combination of <fn> key and a function key are pressed simultaneously. For example -

    • Pressing <fn> and <F10> simultaneously will mute the sound
    • Pressing <fn> and <F11> simultaneously will decrease the volume
    • Pressing <fn> and <F12> simultaneously will increase the volume, and so forth

    I have its Windows 10 re-installed recently. Everything works fine after the installation, except when combination of <fn> key and a function key are pressed simultaneously, no effect seems to be generated, as the computer does not respond accordingly.

    Please advise how to resolve the above problem.

    We appreciate your response. Our next step is to make sure that Fn key is not disabled in Windows Mobility Center. Follow the steps below to enable Fn key in Windows Mobility Center:

    • Type Windows Mobility Center using Search or Cortana.
    • In the Windows Mobility Center window, please locate Function Key Behavior.
    • Click the drop down arrow next to "Function Key Behavior" and then select
      Function key.

    Let us know how it goes.
