    Use keytweak to create your own short cut. I have f3 for volume - and f4 for volume +

    Download KeyTweak 2.3.0 Free - Remap your keyboard. - Softpedia

    Thanks!

    Just downloaded it -- now just need to figure out how to use it. I thought I remapped it correctly but it doesn't work even after I restart.

    I would like the volume - and + keys to be f3 and f4... don't know why Asus put it on the other side.
    They were f3 and f4 on my old vaio and it was so easy to turn my volume up or down.

    launch the program and click on the Half Teach Mode button. Click on the scan a single key and then press f3. Click on the drop down menu and select your new key. Repeat the step for f4 key and then hit apply and reboot. The only thing that sucks about using keytweak is that it will not display the status of the volume like when you are using the fn + f11, f12. but it works tho

    Has anyone had any luck connecting a Bluetooth device to this laptop?

    I have the UX31E-DH52

    I have been trying to connect my mouse for a few hours with no luck. My Android tablet pairs and connects with the mouse just fine.

    I also tried connecting my phone to the laptop to see if it was just the mouse, but neither show up when searching for a device.

    Both connect to my tablet and other Bluetooth enabled laptop.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    My UX31-53 is ready for pickup from Bestbuy. It was on back order for around 3 weeks and hopefully Asus could fix the issues of the wifi and touchpad

    I have no problems connecting another notebook and several smartphones. Have you tried to set the bluetooth to discoverable and find the UX31 with your other laptop?

    Does usb 3.0 work with the stock laptops from the box? Unfortunately I forgot to try my new hdd when the laptop was in "stock". I want to know it to figure out if now it doesn't work because of windows reinstall and drivers absence

    Just flashed bios 209.
    The first i recognised is the improved wireless speed... The first time im getting full speed with download. Tried various speed tests. Before i was getting only 60 to 70 percent of what the internet is capable (on two different locations).

    If the touchpad (sentelic) will get a little bit better driver than i will be fully satisfied with the zenbook.

    Yes, USB3 works with the stock installation. You should try to get your hands on another USB3 device and see if that one works.
