Question Keyboard shortcuts for NON menu items?


Jun 7, 2013
I play a game on my MacBook which uses the standard F keys, but when not playing the game I much prefer having the F keys act as brightness/volume shortcuts etc.

So I'm trying to create a keyboard shortcut which changes a setting in Keyboard Preferences:

"Use F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys"

After some research, I believe it's only possible to use the custom shortcuts under Keyboard>Shortcuts>App Shortcuts to create shortcuts for menu options, rather than for Preferences settings. Does anyone know of a way, or a 3rd party program, to allow me to create a keyboard shortcut for that preferences setting?

Thanks in advance!
