    Hello. New to mac, so i'm learning :)

    I have a new macbook pro and till yesterday when i wanted to change the volume of the music on the mac, i simply press 1 key.

    Now, i can only change the volume pressing Fn + the volume up key.
    The question is: how can i change between the key assignments ? Like.. if i'm listening music i want to access pressing one key, but when i'm working i would like to have the dashboard on that key.

    (that's what happens right now... i want to put volume up but the dashboard appears.


    thanks in advance, and sorry my english, because it's not my native thongue.

    To my knowledge that is impossible.
    Unless you mean when your focusing on iTunes vs all other programs.

    it's not impossible.

    Let me explain this way. You have the ESC key, then the brightless down, right ? And in that key, with the small letters, i have F1. So, this means if i only pressed the key without "Fn" the brightless should go down. That happened yesterday, lol...

    Now... maybe i pressed some key wrong or in the system preference i did something i wasnt supose to do....

    okay, it's working again.
    went to:

    System Preferences => Keyboard & Mouse => Keyboard tab => unchecked "Use F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys"
