    When I'm playing games on my macbook pro.... Sometimes the F buttons have uses in the game.
    I want to know how to use these instead lowering or making the screen brighter.
    Or even adding more volume.
    How do you make these work?

    Go to system preferences --> keyboard & mouse --> keyboard. Check "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys"

    Alternatively, hold Fn while pressing the key.
