    Hi all,

    i just purchased the new apple keyboard and cannot control the volume with the volume keys. The keyboard preferences make no mention of how to get the volume keys working. I updated the keyboard software and that has made no difference. What am I doing wrong?! This is taking the shine of an otherwise fantastic product :(

    Which Mac are you using? Try pressing fn+the volume key :)

    Thanks for responding. I'm using a G4 imac 20" running 10.3.9. nothing happens if I press the function key. I tried moving the the exposes controls to f13 to free up the volume keys but still no joy. anyone else had this problem and managed to sort it:confused:

    Drat... thanks for the info though. Oh well I'm about to upgrade my mac at long last. Just waiting for macworld to see what comes out... Is there a chance apple will release a new update for those people with older systems?
