Anyone know of a Windows 7 fix for the F11 key yet? Works with Ubuntu, but I'm SOL on 7000.

Fn-Z works as F11 for me in W7-7000. I didn't do anything special.

On a Mac, F12 is eject. Also, on a Mac the F-keys have to be accessed w/ the Fn-key modifier. Its backwards from Windows and the special functions (volume, brightness, etc) are the default uses for these keys.

Awesome didn't know there was a f11 until i saw this thread. how do you surf without full screen? i started getting used to going through the menu, but it was seriously annoying.

I have A05 bios and the FN+Z only highlights the "FILE"
What's wrong with me?

EDIT: I'm using IE8

It sounds as if you're pressing Alt rather than Fn.

I wished I was but I'm pressing the Fn key because the Fn+A (F1) brings up the help menu


EDIT: I forgot to clear the registry hack I made w/Sharpkeys

It works fine now......plus i have another hotkey in the right ALT key beside the space bar
