When I researched this issue I found that you can adjust the screen brightness when you hold down the fn-key and press delete (brightness up)/backspace (brightness down). This is better than only being able to change the brightness in the system-controls, but still not to my liking.
I then thought that I could just remap these key combinations (Fn+del and Fn+backspace) to other keys, but I just can't make it work. I looked for different programs that remap keys but none of them seem to be able to do this.
I have been using ahk for other things, but these were only scripts other people wrote, I do not know a lot about writing scripts. I understand that you remap keys like this
and I can make this work with other keys, but in the list of keys and mouse buttons I can not find the fn key. Furthermore you can only adjust the screen brightness if you hold down the fn key, it does not work if you lock the fn-key by pressing it once. I could not find a solution to this problem and I would like to ask for help. Thanks in advance.
Code: Select all
TL;DR I would like to remap a key to the key combination fn+del and another key to fn+backspace but I can't make it work because it seems the fn key is special.
