Hello Emilinator,

 

You are not able to use the F4 key to switch between screens.

 

Go to device manager, uninstall the keyboard and restart the computer.

This will uninstall and reinstall the drivers for the keyboard.

 

Here is a link to device manager.

 

You can also hold down the windows key and press the letter P to switch between screens.

 

Let me know how everything goes

Have a good day.
