Prior to Lion, I can go to Keyboard and there is a nice little checkbox, then I can get my F1-F12 key back.

How do I do this in Lion ?


System Preferences → Keyboard → Keyboard

  • @thinkanotherone Yes. – gentmatt Mar 14 '12 at 20:39
  • Crazy...:( Maybe because I am using a Microsoft keyboard... – thinkanotherone Mar 14 '12 at 20:47
  • @thinkanotherone That makes sense because this functionally is needed for Apple's keyboards as the default mapping is for media keys. What can you do with your function keys? You can see what keys you press using the Keyboard & Character Viewer in System Prefs > Language & Text. – gentmatt Mar 14 '12 at 20:51
  • @thinkanotherone You might also give this keyboard remapping software a try. – gentmatt Mar 14 '12 at 20:55
