    Okay, I'm trying to understand this and each link I've found is a dead end...

    So I'd like to make F7 serve as my "display all windows" Expose key. I looked at DoubleCommand, no luck. Looked at Uklele, which might be able to do the trick, but it's very confusing and I'm not quite sure how it's possible.

    Currently, it is possible to set up Expose with F7, but I must use Function + F7 (because F7 is designated for display mirroring). Anyway around this?

    Thanks.

    I'm curious about this too.

    My F7 key has quit functioning properly (it is labeled and has previously served as the Expose "display all windows") after I upgraded my MacBook from OS X 10.4 to Leopard.

    Le sigh.

    If im getting what your asking go to system prefs> keyboard & Mouse> keyboard shortcuts. Hit the plus key to add a new shortcut and assign it there... I hope that helps.

    EDIT: well i went back to reread and I guess i did read it wrong. sorry im of no help

    I use Function Flip to override the hardware mapping on my function keys e.g. so that F3 is, well, F3, instead of mute.

    Essensially I'm eliminating the need to hold down the fn key. You can do the same thing in sys pref, but only for *all* the keys at once. FunctionFlip lets you pick and choose.

    Here's the story:
