My Logitech KeyBoard Wont Work On Windows 8

Alright , So I purchased Windows 8 Recently and my Keyboard wont work,  typing works but the  F1 - F12 buttons don't work so for example if I want to check my battery power it wont do anything, Is it because Windows 8 don't support Logitech?

Did you look in the right place? It is listed here:

 

 

You will also find Windows 8 downloads on the support pages for this device.

 

 

That page specifically states "Windows 8 support has been added."

So I downloaded the Windows 8 of this Keyboard, but nothing seems to be working, When I want to light up my keyboard brightness it won't work , When I press F9 which is the music icon it wont load as well. I don't understand why it's not working, it really should by now.

What media player? It is FN+F9 – note the orange colour of the  symbol –that works here with Windows Media Player.

 

What do you mean when you say "When I want to light up my keyboard brightness it won't work."? What are you doing and where are you doing it?

Re: My Logitech KeyBoard Wont Work On Windows 8

You are not pressing BOTH BUTTONS.

 

This is what I said in my previous message.

Look at the space bar. Two buttons to the right there is one with an orange FN label. Press that AND the F keys.

 

The idea is that the F keys do what they are supposed to do in programs. They provide the extra functions when you press the FN key.

 

If you want to avoid this "two fingered" approach, then change the setting in SetPoint. In My Keyboard on the F tab, Swap F key functions.
