recently I noticed my f10 & f11 keys no longer function when attempting to adjust the screen brightness. I can still manually adjust the settings under display settings but for some reason the function keys no longer work to do this. Anyone else have this issue? My computer is a MSI GS66 10se-242ca.

To my knowledge the quick lunch buttons have something to do with Dragon Center.
Which Dragon Center version the laptop is running now?

What about other quick launch buttons?

Try to clean install Dragon Center.

downloaded latest drivers and preparing to install. I uninstalled dragon center and dragon center sdk. Reinstalled both. Created a restore point.
What is Dragon "Bug" center?

Reinstalled Dragon Center
updated BIOS
updated Intel drivers (using link provided)
updated Nvidia drivers (using link provided)

the display brightness function keys F10,F11 still don't adjust the brightness.
I recently noticed that the up arrow and down arrow have the same icon on them and they do work so I guess I can just use those instead. I know the function keys used to work for this but, don't anymore, not sure why

unfortunately now I'm having issues with my keyboard lighting. After installing updates I tested function key to test if they are working. Everything worked until I tried F9 (usually that cycles through backlight configurations) this time it disabled the keyboard backlight and I can't seem to get it back on. Tried to re install steal series 3 engine with no resolution.

Thank you for everyone's help.... I think this whole issue was more a misunderstanding I had of the key functions (F10,F11) are meant to adjust the keyboard brightness not the screen brightness as I originally thought. Everything works now... however my F9 key no longer cycles through me keyboard configurations... I'm not really concerned with that.
Thanks again everyone.
