    Has anyone figured out how to use the F keys to map the Windows 2000 keys. I'm working with PD 2.5 and Flight simulator 2004 and win 2K sp4.
    In Flight simulator one uses F2 to put gaz.... it actually brightens the screens as it is supposed to do in MacTen.
    All the best from Paris,

    If your keyboard has a 'fn' key, hold it down and then press the F key.

    Hi there on the mac side go to system preferences, keyboard and mouse ,select keyboard and then activate the "use the F1-F12 keys to control software. Click ok then exit. This will allow you to use the function keys within Parallels to control software. The only setback is to remember to use the Fn key (far left bottom on mac keyboard) when on the mac side to get the mac function keys to work correctly (ie, to change hardware settings)
