    All,

    I am running Windows 7, and currently using a Microsoft Multimedia Keyboard 1.0a. This keyboard has a rather disconcerting feature called the "f-lock", which is a key that you must press if you wish to have access to the function keys F1 thru' F12.

    The problem with this f-lock key is that, after you boot up, you must explicitly press it on in order to access the standard function keys. Absolute nuisance.

    There is a registry hack type of workaround that has been circulated but this is for Windows XP, and does not work for Windows 7 or Vista.

    Does anyone know of a solution that is specific to Windows 7 ?

    Thanks and regards,
