    Hello, My f10(mute),F11(Volume Down), F12(Volume Up) buttons are not recognizing that there volume buttons. Everytime i click them nothing happens. I can turn the volume up and down manually with my mouse in Preferences>Sound I also Defaulted my keyboard Shortcuts but nothing happened. So is there like a volume keyboard shortcut cause its is not in there. :confused::confused::confused:



    thanks in advance

    Depending on what options you've set up in preferences, you may have to press the fn button as well.

    Is this box in your System Preferences > Keyboard & Mouse settings checked?

    My MBP is in my room so it is not in front of me, but I thought it was like F4, F5 and F6.

    Different keyboards?

    Yeah, the location varies depending on the mbp version.

    I think they changed the keyboard arrangement in more recent MBPs.

    Now you've made my MBP feel old, outdated, irrelevant

    Any chance the MBP will be updated soon :rolleyes:

    You could always get the wireless keyboard, which matches the new MBP key arrangement. Then you'd feel young, current and relevant! :D

    Wait, I do have one! I just never use it!
    Ahhh, I feel rejuvenated already!

    Thanks!

    My MBP is 6 months old and the volume keys are F3, F4, and F5.


    Maybe you could return yours for a refund and get another!;)
