Diable Fn key of Mac keyboard for Bootcamp-based Windows system

05 Dec

In a recent project, we are required to deploy our application in Windows platform, and we then installed Windows 7 using Bootcamp. In the subsequent development using Visual Studio 2010, we frequently use F5 (Run/debug), F12 (Go to definition) and F10 (Step into), but each time, we have to use the combination of Fn + F5, Fn + F12, Fn + F10 etc. to accomplish the desired tasks. One of colleagues Arthur, found the way to solve this, although this is also searchable using Google, but it seems almost all descriptions are not very clear. Below are the detailed procedures with snapshot:

  • In the system try, click the icon Boot Camp;
  • Then click the “Boot Camp Control Panel”;
  • in the “Keyboard” tab, tick the “Use all F1, …”

    thank you so much!!! i’ve been looking for this forever, it sounds very simple to add the function key but it’s so annoying when you know and are used to work with one simple hit over and over… thanks!!
