    Hello,

    this is probably a common question.

    I have installed Sierra on my late 2012 MBA and the keyboard is now oddly failing.

    The row of keys between esc & power are not working properly. e.g.. The Volume up key (F12) now brings on the Dashboard. The rest apart from Power just do nothing on their own. I have not tried them with modification keys.

    It is probably very simple - but I would love a simple solution.

    Regards Sharkey

    I feel your pain; I had mapped F15 to Shut Down, but even still it increases brightness which is something new. I've remapped my keys since I started using Macs with Leopard and never had a problem until macOS Sewer.

    Sounds like you have activated the "use all F1,F2 etc as normal function keys" option in System Preferences > Keyboard....

    It should be unticked.

    Thank you very much 'logana'. I really did think it would be something that simple; so am really pleased to find it was.

    You still have to know it of course and your knowledge proved exemplary !!

    Thank you again.

    Regards Sharkey
