    Hey everyone,

    My awesome wife just bought me a new-to-me 2006 MacBook.

    It's awesome.

    I have two questions about keys.

    1) the F7 key doesn't seem to do anything unless I hold the fn key as well. Any ideas?
    2) on the right and side, next to the page up/down home/end keys is an enter key. I know it will usually do the same thing as return, so is there any way to re-map it to be another control or option key? I keep trying to use it as that anyway.

    Thanks everyone!!!

    That toggles display mirroring and spanning. It should only have something to do if you have an external display hooked up.

    DoubleCommand is your friend - it's a wonderful little utility to remap some of the modifier keys on your Mac.

    Thanks for the tip. That worked for the Enter key.

    I still wish the F7 key worked opposite of what you described, but I can live.
