FN key behaviour
Hello Tech guy forums. Usually I solve my problems alone but couldn't find solution for this one anywhere on the Internet.

The problem is in FN button behaviour. Whenever I press FN button (in order to do anything, in this case taking a screenshot) a bar pops up. And it gets really annoying because I can't capture entire screen because of that bar. Any help on disabling that bar would be appreciated.

Laptop model is Toshiba Satellite L755-125. Specifications really don't matter for this problem. Screenshot in attachment.

Thanks for the help.

Why would you use an Fn key for a screenshot? That is not one of their functions.

Don't uninstall anything related to the Fn keys if you want to be able to use them.

I think i just had a facepalm moment... use the Print key on your Keyboard to take a screenshot which will then be put into your Clipboard. From there you can open up MSPaint and paste it there, Thanks Moderator...

I'm not that stupid, there's no need for facepalm. My keyboard doesn't have PrtSc button of it's own, I have to press Fn+End to take screenshot. And then the bar pops up. Also how do you mean I took the screenshot first place but that way? *sigh*

To confirm my words I've included a keyboard photo.

Try exploring Toshiba.com for support.
Your looking for help with TOSHIBA HOTKEYS

Double check your model number. L755-125 was not found on Toshiba site.

My Toshiba also use Fn-End combo for printscreen.
I don't see the F- keys bar on my screen print.
Good Luck and keep us posted

I guess it was not found because it's "made for Adriatic region", here's a page on Croatian - http://bl.computers.toshiba-europe.c...=31&service=BL.

I will look around and keep you posted if I find something.
