If a function key doesn't work as you expect it to, press the FN key in addition to the function key. If you don't want to press the FN key each time, you can change your Apple system preferences:

  1. Go to Apple > System Preferences > Keyboard.

  2. On the Keyboard tab, select the check box for Use all F1, F2, etc. as standard function keys.

    NOTE   This check box affects how the function keys work for your entire computer, not just Excel. After selecting this check box, you'll need to press the FN key to perform the special features printed on the key. For example, you'll notice that the F2 key has a brightness icon. To use the key to change your brightness, you'll need to press FN + F2.
