Win + Break on Dell Vostro 3300

📅 2012-Oct-17 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 📚 Archive

Problem

In Windows, the keyboard shortcut to display the System Properties is Win + Break. There is no Break key on the Dell Vostro 3300 keyboard.

Solution

Pressing Win + Pause seems to simulate the above shortcut. Since the Pause key is shared with F12 key, the keypress is essentially Win + Fn + F12.

Tried with: Windows 8 Pro
