HELP! Cannot use Hot Keys in Panopto with the LTU Yoga

The HOT KEYS on the LTU Yoga tablet do not seem to work?

Each manufacturer sets keyboard functions differently. The LTU Yoga keyboard defaults to the Fn keys controlling computer options.

Turn off the FnLk by pressing and holding the Fn key (on the bottom and to the right of Ctrl key) and pressing the Esc key (top left).

The Fn key will now display a "green light" and Panopto HOT keys will now work!
