Function Key On A Laptop

Recommended Posts

Crome_BAD

Hey guys, i have a big presentation tomorrow and its based on a Microsoft Powerpoint. Well, my laptop will be connected to a projector and the Fn (Function key) and F5 needs to be pressed 2 times.....

My Problem:

I was looking through the Send() key list, and i dont see anything about a Fn key....

Any ideas?

From the helpfile on Send():

Most laptop computer keyboards have a special Fn key. This key cannot be simulated.

Sorry ;)

Fn-F8 switches from LCD to external monitor; F5 starts the Powerpoint presentation; What does Fn-F5 do? Can't it be duplicated via the Powerpoint menus?

Usually, at least on Dell laptops, it refreshes the output between the embedded connection to the LCD screen and VGA output port. I always have to 'play' with that special keyset when doing a presentation with an projector/Smart Board...
