I'd like to set the launchPad key : launchpad key image to the Application windows (See all) function but I can't manage to do it. Any clue ?

  • What app is that ? – Ruskes Apr 10 '14 at 19:23
  • @Buscar웃 the real term is Application windows (See all) I guess – Thomas Ayoub Apr 10 '14 at 19:37

This isn't an ideal answer, but might be good enough:

  • Go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard
  • Check "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys"
  • Go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts
  • Set F3 to "display application windows"
  • Set the other functions on the f-keys to their default (e.g. whichever f-key your keyboard has for play/pause, mine is F8 will be set to iTunes Play/Pause)

This will let you set the F keys to the functions you want and you won't have to press fn to access them.

    Did you try it ? Try to assign this F3 hotkey – Thomas Ayoub Apr 10 '14 at 13:55
  • It works for me. On a laptop, to get f3, you have to hold down the fn key (usually in the bottom left corner of the keyboard, or next to home if you are using an external keyboard) – dwightk Apr 10 '14 at 13:58
  • Yes, precisely, it works for the F3 key, but not with the original launchpad key, I mean, you can assign fn+f3 but not only f3 – Thomas Ayoub Apr 10 '14 at 14:00
  • You can check "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys" in the keyboard tab. and then assign whichever function you want to each F key – dwightk Apr 10 '14 at 14:00

    The keys are in the default configuration : f1 turn down the screen light, f2 turn up the light... And I don't wanna switch to the other config. Does this answer to your question ? – Thomas Ayoub Apr 10 '14 at 15:56
