Inverting the FN keys on a Microsoft Wedge Keyboard

Inverting the FN keys on a Microsoft Wedge Keyboard

8/11/2014 11:26:15 AM

Just picked up one of the pretty nice Microsoft Wedge bluetooth keyboards, and was reasonable incensed when I discovered there was no FN-Lock anywhere on the thing – and it’d been hardware fixed to have my precious function keys used as media player keys. Not very Visual Studio friendly!

Apparently, no official toggle exists, but here’s an AutoHotKey script that works:

Media_Play_Pause::F1

Volume_Mute::F2

Volume_Down::F3

Volume_Up::F4

<+#F21::F5

<!<#F21::F6

<^<#F21::F7

<#F21::F8

PrintScreen::F9

Home::F10

End::F11

PgUp::F12

F1::Media_Play_Pause

F2::Volume_Mute

F3::Volume_Down

F4::Volume_Up

F5::<+#F21

F6::<!<#F21

F7::<^<#F21

F8::<#F21

F9::PrintScreen

F10::Home

F11::End

F12::PgUp
