How to disable an fn hotkey on laptop?

03 Apr 2020, 18:25

The laptop I'm using has some sort of fn F4 key which, when pressed, shuts down the laptop. Now this is a problem when I accidentally press it while I'm trying to adjust the screen brightness, which is right beside it. If there is an easy solution, I'd like to implement.

Try:

Code: Select all

F4::vk07 ;vk07 is unassigned
Or maybe consider disabling your Fn key from the system BIOS.

F4::vk07 - didn't work.



I went into BIOS and disabled the fn lock.

Now I use Action Center to adjust the screen brightness instead.


update: and at startup, if morning or afternoon, my computer turns the brightness up automatically.
