Trying to assign FN key to my Tactx keys, but it isn't recognized.

I can assign all other modifier keys: CTRL, ALT, etc. but for some reason "FN" key doesn't work when setting up the Tactx keys. (I'm trying to assign screen brightness, volume, prt scrn). 

Is this a known issue? Is there a work around?

- I should add... my rig is an Alienware R4 laptop, and I'm using Windows 10

Hi variable88‌,

Unfortunately you can't setup FN combinations to the Tactx Keys. That's why the system has the On Screen Display driver that works with the FN. Make sure you have the OSD driver installed. 

You can define the primary behavior of the function keys (F1–F12) by changing Function Key Behavior in BIOS setup program.
