    Hi guys,

    N00b question perhaps? Just got my Z and I'm annoyed of having to hit Fn+F6/etc to adjust volume/brightness.

    Is there a way to keep it so Fn is always 'on' and thus I only need to hit F6/etc?

    Thanks!

    I would like to know too, I didn't see this option in the bios. maybe it's in one of the sony utilities, I don't have any of those installed right now though.

    You can download and install KeyTweak. You can use it to remap most of the keys on your VAIO. To date, and to my knowledge, you won't be able to dedicate F5/6 to brightness, but you will be able to set the volume keys easily.

    Thanks anseio. That may be what I am looking for also.

    Here is the direct link to the installer and also the manual:
