Using a Mac - Function Keys

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: In this video, Mahalo expert Justin Zagri explains how the Function Keys work on your Mac keyboard. Using a Mac - Function Keys --------------------------------------------------------------------- The Function Keys are located at the top of a Mac keyboard. They are numbered F1 through F19. * F1 decreases your monitor's brightness. F2 increases the brightness. * F3 activates a sub-program called Dashboard. It can come in handy if you have a lot of windows open on your screen. Pressing F3 to activate Dashboard will separate all of your open windows so you can easily view them. Click on a window to work in that particular program. If you want to return back to normal, simply press F3 again. * F4 activates your Widgets, which are sub-programs that serve many functions, such as weather reporting, conversion, translation and calculating. * F7, F8 and F9 are controls that activate your music in iTunes. Pressing F8 will automatically open iTunes. Pressing F8 again will play your music in your iTunes library. F8 will also pause your music (note: these keys will work with any program other than iTunes if you configure them). * F10 mutes your speaker volume. * F11 decreases your volume. * F12 increases your volume. * F13 through F19 can be assigned at your discretion.
