[WT-support] Trouble with the F-keys

Hi Jan

In the BIOS is sometimes a setting to require Fn to make the F keys work. On my Dell this is set by default and I had to turn it off in the BIOS. On my Dell I use F2 when booting to access the BIOS. 

If I wanted my PC to work like a Mac I would have bought a Mac hihi.

Hope this helps.

Everything worked perfect on XP, so I was a bit surprised when the F-keys doesn't work. Nothing happends when I click them. (Except for + and F5 key, in fact theres is nothing written on F5). If I go to the Commands-menu and click on CW/RTTY messages with my mouse, it sends perfect! Keyboard mode works also great, but not F-keys. If I click “fn” key first, then next click on a f-key they works, but I have to activate fn-key every time first. It is clear to me that the problem is on the computer, not win-test. Can anyone give me a light in the tunnell?
