    I used the migration assistant to move most of my stuff from my old MBP to my new one, but that seems to have had the strange effect of keeping the keyboard settings for the old MBP. Very simply, I'd like to set f12 to increase volume, F11 to decrease etc. but I can't work out where I would change those settings. I've been able to change things like expose and dashboard, but this is proving to be a pain in the backside.

    Thanks!

    Me: OS10.5.8
    System Preferences > Keyboard and Mouse > Keyboard Shortcuts

    Always provide your OS when asking a question!

    Good point! 10.6.2 And there is no option for volume. The comparable path is system prefs > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts. :(

    I worked this out. It was more obvious than I hoped, so I now feel silly. At any rate, I thought I would post the solution in case anyone else finds this problem.

    Solution: Uncheck box under keyboard preferences that says: " Use allF1, F2 etc. keys as standard function keys"
    :eek:
