    Woot! The old laptop took a dump on Thursday, and I got a new laptop Friday! It defies belief, anyway, I got the CC patched up, and I watered my flowers before they died, but I can't make any macros! Windows 8 wants my function keys all to itself. Anybody know how I can make it share with UO?

    Correct. I had the same issue but all is well since I upgraded to 8.1. I had all kinds of issues at first but when I upgraded to 8.1, everything seemed better.

    If you have to press Fn to get to your F1, F2, etc, check your bios. I just got a new laptop (Lenovo) and I had to change an option in the bios to have the keyboard act normal.
