Laptops often have special keystroke combinations for certain functions or commands. While these usually work without problems in Windows, Linux operating system users often are left empty-handed as the control often doesn’t work for them.

But the magazine LinuxWelt (issue 5/6/13) reports that there is a way for the special key combinations to be activated manually. The user should open Keyboard Shortcuts in system settings.

A list of system and navigation functions with the assigned keyboard combinations is listed. In order to assign a keystroke or keyboard combination, mark the command with the mouse and then press the desired keystroke or keyboard combination.

If the operating system receives a feedback, then the keystroke or combination can immediately be used for the desired function.
