How to use F Keys

 

 

I have a DV7-1247CL and have never used the F keys so I would ask that someone point me in the proper direction so I can read & experiment with these items.

I read the owners manual but it is not very informative

Thanks

Re: How to use F Keys

This is the manual you should read. It applies to Windows 7 as well.

To use an F key. tap the fn key and then tap an F key.

 

As an example when onlne look at the display. Now tap the Fn key and release it. Now tap the F11 key.  Do you see the change? F11 gives you full screen for online viewing.

 

Best regards,

Sorry to bother you again.  I use the hot keys now and all OK.  There is this PRT SC Key with some others so where is the info on these located.

To use prt scr just hold down the Ctrl key and tap the PRT Scr key. Now you can open a blank word document and paste whatever was on the screen when you used the keystroke combination into the document.

That is an old-fashioned method.
Now that Windows 7 is here most people use the snipping tool.
