Recommended Posts

So I was looking for a compact membrane keyboard (not wireless) and with classic style keys and bought this one:

FN-key isn't even supposed to do anything on its own. It's always used as a key-combo with another key or multiple keys, like e.g. on my laptop, Fn+5 puts the laptop to sleep. Alas, what you bought is just a shit keyboard, since they haven't printed on the keys what they'd do in combination with the Fn-key, so you're just left to trying them all by hand.

Wtf. So what do I do now? I wasn't able to find any other membrane keyboard. I dont buy this mechanical keyboard meme so this one was the only one left that is membrane, wire and has no numpad.

 

I dont even care about functions. I just wanted an additional key there to bind weapons in games.

You either just ignore the Fn-key and use the keyboard as-is, or you try every single keycombo with it. It's up to you which one you decide to go with.

Damn I just would need that key to work to bind it to a weapon.

 

Anyone knows membrane keyboards with no numpads?

Fn itself isnt registered to the OS no matter what keyboard you're on tbh, it only act as a combo key for the keyboard.
