moderated Function keys on wireless keyboardand trying to change the way they operate with JAWS

It may depend on what keyboard it is. On my ErgoK 860, the key between F-12 and backspace will switch the function keys back and fourth. I don't know if the 360 has this.

thanks for the explanation! I've only bought Logitech kb300 series
keyboards for as long as I can remember; and, until this weekend's
discussion, I have no idea that this fn functionality existed in general
and specificly to the KBs I use everyday.
And, truthfully, I never cared.

I'll have to play with this and see if it gives me any new practical use.

Thanks for explaining and outlining the KB360 uses of that key.

Greetings:

Quoting from Loy's email:

" I have a Logitech wireless keyboard with aFN key between alt and cnt., but
it does not seem to have any function."

I have a Logitech K360 keyboard, and the FN key does indeed have some functionality with the Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down keys. I found out what the functions were by going into JAWS help (JAWS Key plus 1) and then pressing the key combinations. On my keyboard FN with Page Up activates the Applications key, for example.

Cordially,

Curtis Chong

I have a Logitech wireless keyboard with aFN key between alt and cnt., but
it does not seem to have any function. I suspect it needs software to set it
up. I have red that the Logitech software is not accessible with JAWS.

Same here. and it's been updated with Logitech software for the
multimedia keys.
Very interesting.
