Yes, it's the new default that I was wondering about. Have they changed the colour of the keys? It used to be that F1-F12 on Dells was printed white like the other keys, while the alternate function symbols were printed red like the Fn key, making it obvious that you had to press Fn to use them.

Have they changed the colours, as well as the default?

The reason I'm interested is because I regularly have to help people over the phone to get their laptops connected to projectors, and often they need to use an Fn combination to do that. If I will now have to get them to also try it without the Fn key, it doubles the number of things they need to get right.
