    Works fine on ORNYMG 150.1

    There are background programs that can catch key presses, what other programs do you have running?

        MSTS does not run in OR, do you mean that you are running MSTS content with OR?

        You need to check with task manager for other programs running.

          Under Apps Microsoft edge Is running.

          Under Background processes (59) All on 0 Percent (cannot find Percentage key on this keyboard)

          Hope this is what you meant.

          Thanks

          Paul.

            Have you tried other routes? On ET another problem was reported with F6 and it turned out to be route specific.

                  Is this a laptop? Some laptops hijack the function keys and require using the Fn key usually by the Ctrl Alt and Start key (lower left).
                  If you like what you see here at Trainsim.com, be it the discussions and knowledge in the forums, items saved in our library or the ongoing development of our TSRE Fork, I hope you'll consider a paid membership to help support keeping the site operating.... Thanks!

                    When I bought a new computer a couple of years ago, I found this switching of the actions of the Fn keys from what I had been accustomed to kind of awkward as well, so I found a way to change them. If you Google "How to Change Fn Key Settings Windows 11?" you will be able to find various ways of getting back the Fn functions you want, appropriate for your OS. Then you will find F6 works as it should.
