    Fn Key


    What is a Fn Key? I have googled it and it says it's a function key. F1-F12. I see post where people say press the Fn key + another key. Example ( I would have to hold FN, press Ctrl or Alt and press F4.)

    Please educate me.

    Thanks, Now I know. I don't have a Fn key. No wonder I couldn't find it. It's mainly on laptops. You never know until you ask.
