My Logitech keyboard has extra functions built into the F-keys. And worse, these functions override the native functions. The F4 key pulls up power point, the F5 key does undo, and so on. Can I un-program this?

There should be a lock of somesort...similar to caps lock, and what it does. It should be pressed to "lock in" your function keys. Pressing it again should "unlock" your function keys, allowing them to do their native actions.

If you don't have a button on your keyboard that will do this, then you can try looking in some sort of options (if you have options) and looking for a disable feature. If you don't have options, then you can always uninstall the keyboard (the software that came with it), restart your computer and let Windows install it. That should disable the functions....but it will probably disable all the "extra" functions on the keyboard as well, which may defeat the purpose of having a keyboard that has those extra functions.

LOL check this out. I have looked for this key before. I've spent 10-plus minutes looking for it. The second you told me this, I look to the right of the F row and what do you know there is a big key labelled MODE. I feel so incompetent.

LOL! :thumbsup: Oddly enough, that's right where mine is......bet we have the same keyboard! :flowers:

Glad to hear that you're all straightened out now!

Is your keyboard the S510? It's on the back of the keyboard
