    Just got a new Apple usb keyboard. Very nice too. However, F8 doesn't work Spaces. Any thoughts??? Seems like it should. It did with my old keyboard and everything is set up in the System Preferences so that it should.
    Thoughts??
    Thanks.

    You'll need to use the 'fn' key + F8. If that annoys you you can go to System Preferences->Keyboard and check 'Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys'.
