Hello,
There is no driver required to use the function keys. You just need to use the function (fn) like a shift key. Hold the function (fn) key and then press the according function key.

Laptop was provided after an being reformatted and Windows 10 installed. None of the function keys work.


If you're sure the FN key works; usually Windows 10 is happy with a chipset driver reinstall. Otherwise, normally it's in the bios settings as to whether the keyboard toggles work or not.

Turn wireless networking on


On the top row of keys, where the Function keys are, you should see a second set of BLUE icons on the keys. The F12 key will turn on the wireless. You must PRESS AND HOLD the Fn key (next to the Windows keys at the bottom) while pressing F12.

I've got a mobile computer samsung r510 and was provided with vista. I changed for XP and now the FN key in blue don't work anymore ! please help


Function keys on notebooks require drivers during the installation it should have seen that it was a notebook and installed the correct "keyboard driver" I suspect that it may have not. You will need to go into your settings under hardware and see what type of keyboard is installed that will solve your issue.
