Photoshop CC Windows 10 all latest versions, Working on a Laptop not PC.
The Fill layer command Shift + F5 does not work, it changes my screen brightness!
The shift + F5 could be assigned by your Laptop manufacturer for the brightness, you can also use the shift + backspace to open the fill dialog
Hello There might be a preference somewhere in the additional software installed on your laptop to disable that...
I work on Macs, so I am not positive that this applies. On a Mac, the function keys can be brightness, sound, etc., or they can be standard function keys. There are two ways to toggle the behavior:
Whenever I get a new Mac, one of the very first things I do is go to System Preferences and set the function keys to be function keys. When you look at your F5 key, is there a brightness icon on it?
First try fn+Shift+F5 to see if that works. Then look in your preferences/settings (or whatever its called in Windows) and see if there is a checkbox to switch the behavior.
