Kbase Article of the Week: Apple Thunderbolt Display (27-inch): F8 key does not work using Windows with USB keyboard connected to display →


You may notice that when using Windows and a USB keyboard that is connected to a Mac via the USB port on an Apple Thunderbolt Display (27-inch), the F8 key is not recognized by Windows when you attempt to accept the Terms and Conditions agreement or start up into Windows Safe Mode.

To restore the use of the F8 key, connect your USB keyboard directly to the computer’s USB port.
