I've just reinstalled NAW on a fairly new Windows 10 desktop and updated it to v. 3.1. Am stumbling about trying to get a feel for the controls. One problem seems to have emerged early. The manual's discussion of the keyboard interface indicates that the F1, F4, F8, and F12 have significant roles in controlling the game. However, these keys are not responsive at all when I attempt to use them during a scenario.
I'm using a US layout, a Microsoft "natural" keyboard. Game seems to be functional on my new computer (HP Pavilion, purchased just last year) except for the specified "F" keys. But I've just begun to work my way through the online manual after long absence.

Check your keyboard manual to make sure there is no 'alternate-function-keys' or 'lock-function-keys' setting that might be active, off-hand that's the only obvious thing I can think of that would cause those keys to not register in the NAW game.
