Use the function keys on your Samsung PC
The keys at the top of your PC's keyboard (the ones that say F1, F2, etc.) are called the function keys. These shortcuts let you quickly access different PC features without searching through a bunch of settings or menus. From changing the screen brightness to adjusting the volume, function keys will help you maneuver through your PC with no hassle.
Note: The function keys' controls may vary depending on the PC or keybord.
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's right on the keys. Here's what the keys do:
F1: Launch Settings.
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 the mute function on or off.
F7: Lower the volume.
F8: Raise the volume.
F9: Turn the keyboard backlight on or off.
F10: Open the Task View screen.
F11: Enter full screen mode.
Note: This function may not be available for some apps.
F12: Turn Airplane mode on or off.
