I use F5 like it was a religion, and occasionally am forced to toggle full-screen off or on with F11, among other uses.

In the last 24-48 hours, my function keys have ceased responding in IE, and I have been unable to discover a way to re-enable them.

Suggestions?

Is this a laptop or desktop computer?

Have you looked in the Device Manager to see if there are any problems with it?

Have you tried using a different keyboard?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Desktop.

Yes. There were no problems listed under either of the HID devices in the keyboard category.

Nope. Only have the one keyboard available.

You did send me out to look for new drivers, though. Seems I'm not the only one with this problem, and they did the research for me. I had to download something off the impossible-to-use Microsofe site for my MS Digital Media Keyboard. http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download...spx?category=MK

I'm never going to lose that link.
