Your keyboard's hotkeys, or shortcuts, are perfect for quickly accessing different computer functions. There's no need to navigate through any settings windows when you need to adjust the volume, activate the Wi-Fi connection feature, or increase the screen's brightness. You can use these key combinations to alter your settings without touching the mouse at all.

Use the hotkeys

There are two ways you can set up your hotkey combinations so they will activate.

  1. Press and hold the Fn key. Then, press a hotkey.

  2. Or, press the Fn Lock key. Then, press a hotkey. When the Fn Lock is activated, hotkeys can be used without pressing the Fn key.
