Postposted on Tue Dec 31, 2013 1:38 pm

Hi Guys,

Just picked up a new MBPR 13", with French-Canada keyboard... I cannot figure what this one key does.. top left corner, looks like power symbol, but arrow at 11:00..

Anyone know its use?

Accent grave, qu'est-ce que c'est?

Or maybe it orders smoked meat from Schwartz's?

It seems to hide the cursor, odd that it isn't on the US-English KB

You could probably remap a key on the US English keyboard if the feature really appeals to you, but I don't speak Mac.
