Using the Function keys is super simple. Just press and hold the Fn key, and then press your desired function key (e.g., F1, F2, etc.). You don’t have to memorize where the Function keys are located because it says right on the keys. Here's what the keys do:

  • F2: Lower the screen brightness.

  • F3: Raise the screen brightness.

  • F4: If an external display is connected, switch between the device screen and the external display.

  • F5: Lock the touchpad.

  • F6: Turn on/off the mute function.

  • F7: Lower the volume.

  • F8: Raise the volume.

  • F9: Turn the keyboard backlight on or off.

  • F10: Open the Task View screen.

    Note: This function may not be available for some apps.
