So have you ever had your F2 editing button stop working? (I use mine a lot for editing cells in Excel). For the longest time mine had stopped working and well I had just given up on it. Now I've realized that there is an F Lock key Doh! so I just pressed it again and there ya go, my F2 is working again!! Woot!

This did the trick.

It's weird that the F-Lock key has to be turned on for the Funciton Keys to work.
Seems like Microsoft would have it turned on by default (for function keys) instead of the other way around.

Great Tip!! Excel is usable again..Laughing

 Been using the F2 edit key since Lotus 1-2-3 in 1983.

Got a new MS Natural Keyboard a month ago,
A few days ago F2 stopped working.
Must have tapped it accidentally.
Thanks for the fix !
