    Fresh install, what does the rog icon do above the number pad?

    when i got the computer new, i logged into windows, installed the new bios, then immediately wiped the computer and fresh installed windows 8.1 so I never used the rog icon button before i wiped the computer. What does the icon do? it does nothing for me now.

    Also, is there a way to make the F keys (especially the sound, f10, f11, f12) defult to the function buttons, instead of f #?

    Hello!
    It is to start Game center which you can use by downloading the driver for it from Utilities in the drivers section for your laptop model. Link for G751 models: http://www.asus.com/Search/?SearchKey=g751

    Here is also a guide I have made with the steps I took when doing a clean install of Windows 8.1 if it will help you in any way: https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...Clean-install)
    And if you don't think you will want gaming center just leave it as it is, it's mostly a nice looking interface with date and time, weather and such.
    Regarding the F keys I'm not sure to be honest, sorry. I use the volume shortcuts by pressing Fn and the certain F button.

    I don't quite understand what you are saying. You want to make the F10, F11, F12 keys to work directly as Volume UpDown and Mute without pressing the Fn Key ?
