PC Keyboard?
Authored by: spodie on Sep 17, '02 05:43:29PM

I do Mac-only tech support for an organization that has 45+ Macs and 150+ PCs. They have a database on an AS/400 server that is accessed by everyone, Macs included. The Mac users complain about not having any function keys beyond F15, which are needed to access certain information.

This sounds intriguing. Does anyone know if I would be able to set up function keys on an Apple Pro Keyboard to go beyond F15? All the Mac users have tried double-pressing F-keys to get the desired number (such as F12 twice to get F24), but it only seems to work on PowerBooks that have a Function key in addition to Command, Control, and Option. These Mac users need to access F25 like the PC weenies do. I just don't know how to do it.

Any help, suggestions, or money would be deeply appreciated.

We use a couple of programs to communicate with our AS/400 machine and both of them use the shift key to add 12 to the Fkey that is pressed. For example, Shift-F12 sends F24. Have you tried this combination already?
