Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 and Mac OSX Expose

A niche shortie, but a goodie! I’m posting this in the hope another keyboard shortcut monster trying to get expose work on their Microsoft ergonomic Keyboard 4000 and Mac will find this useful!

This has driven me nuts for ages, I want expose to work on my mac with the Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard 4000, however F10 does sweet FA.

Until… you press the F Lock key, the key to the right of F12. This function lock key turns on the F Lock light at the bottom of the keyboard and Boom! my Expose keys work again 🙂

I can now switch between app windows, show my dashboard or bring up my ever less useful widget screen…

Here is a cat gif for those who read this and didn’t need too,
