How to Light up a Dell Studio Keyboard

By David Sarokin

The Dell Studio line of laptop computers offers an optional backlit keyboard feature on its models. The backlit keyboard is a convenient illumination system that provides a soft light allowing you to work in an otherwise dark setting. Dell's backlit keyboard can be toggled through three states of illumination. Adjusting the light intensity is a straightforward process.

Step 1

Press and hold the Function (Fn) key on the Dell Studio keyboard.

Press the right-arrow key to activate the backlit keyboard.

Step 3

Press the right-arrow key again, still holding down the Function key, to toggle the keyboard through its three illumination modes: full intensity, half intensity and off.

Tips & Warnings
