View Full Version : Fn key permanantly on, direct access of function keys

03-09-2012, 11:42 AM
I own a G74SX

I would like to to use the function keys for brightness, volume, wlan and so on without having to always press the Fn key, a little bit like it is on Macs. I use the F1 to F12 keys much less, so would be much more convenient. I googled and researched quite a lot but did not really find a solution.
On other laptops there is a BIOS setting for this. I also tried with AutoHotKey, but the fn key does not send a code, so I could not figure out how to remap the keys.

Does anyone have any more ideas or perhaps already succeeded to achieve this?

Any help is very much appreciated.

To my knowledge, you can't remap the keys controlled by the ATK Package driver. You say you cannot remap the Fn key. Can you remap F1, F2, F3, etc.?

Yes, the F1-F12 keys can easily be remapped, but then I can not use the F keys any more... also I dont know if it is possible to direct them to all those functions, some for sure yes, like volume, but the others are to special I think, but might also possible, just that I loose the F keys...
