    No F11 key to full screen?

    Greeting to all, & in advsnce, my thanks. We recently acquired "She Who Must be Obeyed's " alloy iMac7.1 from her office. F21 was a simple install, & so far, so good.......except for one trivisl item. The F11 key, no longer allows going to full screen, It appears to control, or want to , audio volume. Simple question, is it the natiure of Fedora on a Mac, or is there some method to enable full screen viewing. Please forgive me, I may be in Silicon Valley, but I am not a techie. No offense intended to those that are.
    Cheers..................

    Have you tried holding the Fn key when hitting F11? Even on OS X, all of the F* keys have other functions (volume control, brightness, etc.) and you have to hit e.g. Fn+F11 if you want to input the F11 key.

    My apologies for the delayed reply....been a bit busy. My thanks for the suggestion!! ! Fn / F11 together works.
