If you are a Surface owner who misses using the function row without having to reach for the “Fn” key every time, don’t worry - Microsoft has you covered. A new update, coming next week, for Microsoft’s Touch Cover and Type Cover keyboards will allow users to lock the top row of keys into their “F1-F12” states. Simply hit “Fn + Caps” and the behavior of the top row of keys will be swapped, hit it again to return back to default.
In addition, Microsoft will be adding a collection of new hotkey combinations that will allow users to perform the actions of missing keys such as: Print Screen, Home, End, Page Up/Down, and more. A full list of the updated hotkeys can be seen after the break.
