IIRC you have to hold down the 'Command' button while hitting a Function key.

 

(Because clearly all Mac computers are submissive)

Super_Azusa,

 

There are two ways of using the [Function] keys in OS X/macOS.

 

Hold down the [fn] key, keep holding down and select the [Function] key you want [thanks Asid3001] - NOTE: The location of this key varies on each keyboard layout.

 

Open [System Preferences] - select [Keyboard] then check [Use F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys] - NOTE: This is a system-wide change.

Incorrect - that is not the correct key sequence.

 

Perhaps you should go back to that non-submissive OS as that mean those users are submissive.
