More important, what keyboard do you have? What is the model number? I've never seen a keyboard without function keys.

It could be possibly be broken.

I'm sorry - you're saying the keyboard doesn't have any function keys because the keyboard is broken? It would have to literally be broken in half. Let's wait to hear from the poster, shall we? :)

Hey
That is not possible. I've never seen such a keyboard. Is it a very old one? Still then a keyboard without the F keys is not acceptable. You can recheck with the person from whom you have bought the keyboard. There is some problem it seems. Definitely the keyboard is a defected one.

Some older Mac keyboards lack function keys. I've never personally seen a separate keyboard without F-keys but I have seen some older macbooks without them. AFAIK there's not a keyboard shortcut to fill the function (no pun intended) of the function keys.

As Allan said, best to wait to see if the poster responds.
