Computer's F11 Key Doesn't Work

My F11 button on my computer does not work 99% of the time. Because of recent updates on my computer, most of the time the box to write the chat in while playing games is all but cut off. The button doesn't work unless by chance. There is a link to do it another way, but that is only on screens with the tool bars at the top. The game page doesn't have those links. Anyone have any other suggestions? If we get the screen to enlarge , it surprises us so much we don't remember how we did it.

If you are using a windows operating system. look at the accessibility options. You can turn on an on-screen keyboard and use your mouse to select F11.

Keyboards are usually inexpensive, sometimes you can pick one up for less than $10 at rummage sales. Good Luck!
