Using the Keyboard

Your Fujitsu LifeBook notebook has an integral 86-key keyboard. The keys perform all the standard functions of a 101-key keyboard, including the Windows keys and other special function keys. This section describes the following keys.

Numeric keypad:

Your notebook allows certain keys to serve dual purposes, both as standard characters and as numeric and mathematical keys. The ability to toggle between the standard character and numerical keys is controlled through the [NumLk] key.

31 - Keyboard

Cursor keys:

Your keyboard contains four arrow keys for moving the cursor or insertion point to the right, left, up, or down within windows, applications and documents.

Function keys:

The keys labeled [F1] through [F12], are used in conjunction with the [Fn] key to produce special actions that vary depending on what program is running.

Windows keys:

These keys work with your Windows operating system and function the same as the onscreen Start menu button, or the right button on your pointing device.

Numeric Keypad

Certain keys on the keyboard perform dual functions as both standard character keys and numeric keypad keys. NumLk can be activated by pressing the [NumLk] keys. Turning off the NumLk feature is done the same way. Once this feature is activated you can enter numerals 0 through 9, perform addition ( + ), subtraction ( - ), multiplication ( * ), or division ( / ), and enter decimal points ( . ) using the keys designated as ten-key function keys. The keys in the numeric keypad are marked on the front edge of the key to indicate their secondary functions.

Windows Keys

Your LifeBook notebook has two Windows keys, consisting of a Start key and an Application key. The

Start key displays the Start menu. This button functions the same as your onscreen Start menu button. The

Application key functions the same as your right mouse button and displays shortcut menus for the selected item. (Please refer to your Windows documentation for additional information regarding the

Windows keys.)

Cursor Keys

The cursor keys are the four arrow keys on the keyboard which allow you to move the cursor up, down, left and right in applications. In programs such as Windows Explorer, it moves the “focus” (selects the next item up, down, left, or right).

32 - Keyboard

Function Keys

Your LifeBook notebook has 12 function keys, F1 through F12. The functions assigned to these keys differ for each application. You should refer to your software documentation to find out how these keys are used.

The [Fn] key provides extended functions for the notebook and is always used in conjunction with another key.

[Fn+F3]: Pressing [F3] while holding [Fn] will toggle the Audio Mute on and off.

[Fn+F6]: Pressing [F6] repeatedly while holding [Fn] will lower the brightness of your display.

[Fn+F7]: Pressing [F7] repeatedly while holding [Fn] will increase the brightness of the display.

[Fn+F8]: Pressing [F8] repeatedly while holding [Fn] will decrease the volume of your LifeBook notebook.

[Fn+F9]: Pressing [F9] repeatedly while holding [Fn] will increase the volume of your LifeBook notebook.

[Fn+F10]: Pressing [F10] while holding [Fn] allows you to change your selection of where to send your display video. Each time you press the combination of keys you will step to the next choice.

The choices, in order, are: built-in display panel only, external monitor only, and both built-in display panel and external monitor.

Figure 9. Touchpad pointing device

The Touchpad pointing device comes built into your Fujitsu LifeBook notebook. It is used to control the movement of the pointer to select items on your display panel. The Touchpad is composed of a cursor control, a left button, a right button, and a scroll button (or fingerprint sensor, depending upon your system configuration).

The cursor control works the same way a mouse does, and moves the cursor around the display. It only requires light pressure with the tip of your finger. Additionally, the touchpad allows you to zoom in or out and scroll through large documents using simple gestures.

The left and right buttons function the same as mouse buttons. The actual functionality of the buttons may vary depending on the application that is being used. Between the left and right buttons is the scroll button which allows you to quickly navigate through pages. Depending upon your system configuration, the

scroll button may be replaced by a fingerprint sensor, which is used to secure your system. (See “Appendix

B: Fingerprint Sensor Device” on page 164.)

Dragging

Dragging means pressing and holding the left button, while moving the cursor. To drag, move the cursor to the item you wish to move. Press and hold the left button while moving the item to its new location and then release it. Dragging can also be done using the

Touchpad. First, tap the Touchpad twice over the item you wish to move making sure to leave your finger on the pad after the final tap. Next, move the object to its new location by moving your finger across the

Touchpad, and then release your finger.

Navigating Using Gestures

The touchpad allows you to use gestures to zoom in or out on a page or scroll quickly through large documents.

Zooming In:

To zoom in on a page using the touchpad, simply place two fingers together on the touchpad and move

them away from each other. (See Figure 17)

Zooming Out:

To zoom out on a page using the touchpad, place two fingers on the touchpad and move towards each

other. (See Figure 18)

Continuous Scroll:

To scroll through a large document using gestures, hold your finger on the right side of the touchpad for a couple of seconds until a circular icon appears, then move your finger in a clockwise circular motion to scroll down, or counter-clockwise to scroll up. To scroll side to side, hold your finger on the botttom edge of the touchpad for a couple of seconds until a circular icon appears, then move your finger clockwise to

scroll right, and counter-clockwise to scroll left. (See Figure 19)

Momentum:

To increase the cursor movement speed, slide your finger quickly across the touchpad. (See Figure 20)

Enabling/Disabling Gesture Functions:

1

To enable or disable the gesturing functions, go to Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound.

2

Double-click Mouse, and the Mouse Properties window will appear.

3

Select the Device Settings tab and click the [Settings...] button.

Controlling the Volume

The volume can be controlled in several different ways:

Volume can be changed using the [Vol -] and [Vol +] buttons above the keyboard.

Volume can be changed or muted from within the Volume Control in the system tray.

Volume can be muted by pressing the [F3] key while holding down the [Fn] key. To restore audio, repeat the [Fn+F3] procedure.

Figure 21. Volume buttons

Volume can be controlled with the F8 and F9 functions keys. Pressing [F8] repeatedly while holding

[Fn] will decrease the volume of your notebook. Pressing [F9] repeatedly while holding [Fn] will increase the volume of your notebook.

Volume can be controlled by many volume controls that are set within individual applications.

Certain external audio devices you might connect to your system may have hardware volume controls.

Each method puts an upper limit on the volume level that must then be followed by the other methods.

We recommend that you experiment with the various volume controls to discover the optimal sound level.
