How do I enable the Mac keyboard?

Answered by Jeremy Urbaniak

To enable the Mac keyboard, you can follow these steps:

1. Start by clicking on the Apple menu, which is located in the top-left corner of your screen. A dropdown menu will appear.

2. From the dropdown menu, select “System Preferences.” This will open a new window with various settings options.

3. In the System Preferences window, you will see different categories. Look for the “Keyboard” option and click on it. This will open the Keyboard settings.

4. Once you are in the Keyboard settings, you will see multiple tabs at the top. Click on the one that says “Keyboard Shortcuts.” This tab allows you to customize the shortcuts on your keyboard.

5. In the left sidebar of the Keyboard Shortcuts tab, you will find a list of options. Look for the one that says “Function Keys” and click on it.

6. On the right side of the Function Keys section, you will see a checkbox that says “Use F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys.” Make sure this checkbox is checked. Enabling this option will allow you to use the function keys (F1, F2, etc.) as regular function keys without any additional features.

7. Once you have checked the box, you can close the System Preferences window. Your Mac keyboard is now enabled.

It’s worth noting that enabling the Mac keyboard in this way will make the function keys work as standard function keys by default. If you want to use the special features that some function keys offer, such as adjusting brightness or volume, you will need to hold the “Fn” key while pressing the desired function key.

I hope this explanation helps you enable your Mac keyboard. If you have any further questions, feel free to ask.
