On a typical Mac the function keys have a special meaning. They are used to control the volume, the screen's brightness or iTunes. But some applications, games or especially Windows software that is running in VMWare Fusion or Parallels use the normal function keys. FNable allows you to easily use your function keys in the applications that you need them.

Automatically switches to your Function keys

FNable runs in the background and can quickly change your special keys to function keys. The applications that use Function keys, are remembered and every time you switch to such an application, the function keys will be available. In all other apps the special keys will be available. Of course you can still use the special keys while your function keys are active, just hold down the FN key when clicking the function keys.

Use FNable the way you like!

Don't clutter your menu bar

While you can add FNable to your menu bar just as many other apps, you can also put FNable into your menu's corners, for extra speedy access. That saves some menu bar real estate and you can find FNable in any running app, that might otherwise hide the menu bar items.
