But what you could do, its make a very simple autohotkey code to make f12 your volume increase by default. ( honestly, how often do you use f12 for anything other than media? )

I actually use a very similar set up myself, f8= play/pause f9 next f10 mute f11 vol down f12 vol up

This is going to be the best bet. You can also use AHK to only use shortcuts when a certain keypress combo toggles the shortcuts.

I have two questions for you guys.
I was thinking about getting a new keyboard ~100$ and I narrowed it down to these three. Which should I go with?
http://gaming.coolermaster.com/en/products/keyboards/quickfireultimate/
http://gaming.coolermaster.com/en/products/keyboards/quickfirext/
http://ozonegaming.com/product/strike-battle/


And if we compare those three to Ducky Shine 3? It's worth to pay almost 2x more (in my country) to get Ducky? Is the quality between those two models really significant? The functionality is almost the same? Will Ducky last for few more years?

There's a hot key program.. Forget what it's called, but you should be able to set the FN key as a modifier with that application and make it stick. It's a free program. Quick Key maybe it's called? Completely forget...

What do you guys think about swiches? Which are best for gaming? Isn't brown "perceptible jump" too frustrating?

no, it won't work, the FN key is wired to the keyboards controller. most keyboards fn keys are not read by the OS

It's preference, the 'best' switch type is the one you enjoy for whatever you use the keyboard has for you. I've had no problem playing dozens of games with mx blues and love typing on them, other people enjoy reds/blacks/browns/clears/topre/etc. The best thing to do would be to try out different switch types at a store or, if you can't do that, get a switch tester and see which switch type you like.

I'm fairly certain it will work as it worked with my Max Keyboard.

Just because it worked on yours does not mean it works on all.

I 100% guarantee you can not remap the FN key on a QFR. Again, most keyboards FN keys are wired to the keyboards controller, which outputs the alt key, its not read by the OS.

Programmable keyboards and keyboards with their own drivers probably can be done, but plug and play keyboards for the most part are not able to be remapped.

Hello there. I just acquired a Roccat Ryos MK Glow with Mx Blacks. I just took it out the box and I feel that the enter key does not spring back fully. Any idea how to rectify it. My keyboard does not come with a key cap puller. How can I make a key cap puller?

Edit: It feels like enter is catching on something about halfway through its travel.
