U31-70 Type 80M5 - Fn Remapping - Key Code Needed

Some of the keys of my laptop keyboard suddenly stopped working.
It´s not a big problem since I could remap most of them.

But I cannot remap the FN key - since I don´t know the code for it (and it doesn´t appear listed as an option in the remapping program).

 

Question:
Could someone let me know what´s the FN key code?


I´m using SharpKeys for remapping (https://github.com/randyrants/sharpkeys/releases).
If anyone would be so kind to let me know the code for the FN key would be much appreciated.


In this example: https://i.imgur.com/keDeZHU.png i´m showing the code for "D" (which is 00_20)
I would need the one for FN.

 

Thanks!
Dario.

PS: The key EO_63 doesn´t work.

Hi dario77 , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

I would expect that you have also came with similar discussion here and here saying that since FN keys are machine based and not controlled by the Operating system , it can't be remapped. Modding the BIOS is risky and is not recommended.

 

Things that SharpKeys will not do

  • Support certain hardware keys that never make it to Windows - e.g. Logitech’s volume buttons or most Fn keys

 

Regards
