This is an app created in Automator. It toggles the "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys" option in Mac OS System Preferences. A task that is tedious when done often (which programmers tend to do).
All it does is that it executes this AppleScript snippet:
tell application "System Preferences" reveal anchor "keyboardTab" of pane "com.apple.preference.keyboard" end tell tell application "System Events" to tell process "System Preferences" click checkbox 1 of tab group 1 of window 1 end tell quit application "System Preferences"
fn.app folder into
In OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) and later, you also need to:
- go to
System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Accessibility > Privacy
Allow the apps below to control your computer.
Run the app. The fastest way to do it is from Spotlight:
⌘ + space(or similar) to open Spotlight.
fn.appshould be the Top Hit.
