I'm using a Durgod keyboard (replacing an old Mac keyboard) and would like to have Fn+F11 to lower volume and Fn+F12 to increase volume. Those are the keys I use for volume control on the Mac keyboard. It doesn't work right now with the Durgod keyboard. How do I make this possible using Karabiner Elements?

Here's a screenshot of my configuration

To achieve what you asked, try select f11 to volume_decrement and f12 to volume_increment, and toggle the "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys"

  • Thanks for your answer! I have my f11 and f12 keys set like in your screenshot right now, and I can adjust the volume this way without having to press Fn. But I need it to only work when I press Fn because I have shortcuts assigned to the f11 and f12 keys.

  • Do you have "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys" checked?

  • In System Preferences > Keyboard, have you selected "Use F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys"? (If you select this one it will reverse the option you have in karabiner.

  • I tried that, but it unfortunately didn't have any effect.
