Re: The Fn key
Even if you have an external keyboard with a Fn key, it still won't
work. I am using a Visento v1 with a Fn key right now and it won't
operate any of the laptops Fn hotkeys. Although it uses the Fn key for
its own special functions like Explorer, Search, Calculator, email,
So if there is a way, I never found one yet. Things like sleep, mute,
volume up or down, etc. are doable with some external keyboards. But
things like brightness, Bluetooth on/off, WiFi on/off, switch monitor,
etc. you're stuck with the internal keyboard.
Once I was using this Visento external wireless keyboard with one of
these 17 inch laptops and the keyboard is almost the same size as the
internal one. And I got a crazy idea. And I thought how cool would it be
if a laptop manufacture made a laptop with a pull out wireless keyboard?
Heck I would think a lot of people would go for that one. ;-)
