    I have the wireless keyboard (without the numeric keypad) for my iMac. It is not the original keyboard that came with my computer because I spilled a drink on the other one, unfortunately. Anyways, the F1-F12 function keys worked perfectly fine with my old keyboard, but when I synced up this one the keys either do nothing or something they aren't supposed to. I have done all of this:

    - System Preferences > Keyboard & Mouse > Keyboard > Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys: I have this checked.

    - System Preferences > Universal Access: This is enabled.

    I've also tried restoring the defaults. Please help? Thank you!

    what system you on as these keyboards only supported from sys 10.6.?. if go to macupdate.com might find app to enable to change keys. not sure thought i saw one on it called keychanger .but if search for keyboard in bar might find one. hope it helps
