Function keys behavior
Allows you to change the behavior of the function keys. The two possible options are:
F2, etc. as special keys (default)
F2, etc. as standard function keys
⚠️ A restart of your Mac is required to apply these changes.
- Tested on macOS:
- Parameter type: bool
false (default value)
By default, pressing a function key will perform the special feature printed on that key.
defaults write NSGlobalDomain com.apple.keyboard.fnState -bool false
F2, etc. behave as standard function keys. Press the
fn key to use the special features printed on the key.
defaults write NSGlobalDomain com.apple.keyboard.fnState -bool true
Read current value
defaults read NSGlobalDomain com.apple.keyboard.fnState
Reset to default value
defaults delete NSGlobalDomain com.apple.keyboard.fnState
