    I installed these on my 2011 mbp i5:

    VMware Fusion
    Windows 7
    Windows Version of Microsoft Office 2007

    I'm currently taking an Integrated Accounting class at my college which I'm using excel frequently. To record macros in excel, I need to use the Windows function keys (F1 through F12).

    My question is how can I use those function keys while I'm in excel?

    Thanks a bunch!

    You should be able to hold the fn key and use them like normal. Or you can make them operate as the f1-f12 keys normally in system prefs.

    You may want to keep in mind that suggesting illegal downloads is against forum rules.
