New function keys within Surface
Finally, Microsoft said it will implement a compatibility fix within the Surface, restoring some of the function keys to their natural state. For example, hitting F5 on the Surface currently launches the Search app, rather than a PowerPoint presentation. With the update, hitting Fn+Caps locks the F1-F12 keys into being function keys. Hitting Fn+Caps again will cause those keys to trigger the Charms and other functions. Other Fn revisions will trigger changes in brightness, the print screen functions, and other commands.
