Hello Erik,

When connected to your host computer, there is an option that can be enabled in the GoToMyPC Preferences that will "Send Windows Keys to Host." You may enable this feature by following the steps below.
  1. Right click on the MYPC icon in your system tray (on your host)
  2. Select Preferences
  3. Click the Viewer tab
  4. Check Pass Windows keys to host computer
  5. Click OK
Changing this setting in your GoToMyPC Preferences should allow you to send Function keys to your host.

I am having the same issue. When I go to the host computer, Logmein preferences, there is no 'viewer' tab. Is there another place the 'pass thru' option could be hiding?

Hi @kmkoury ,

Sorry for any confusion there. Would you be able to specify what operating system is in use on both ends?

I am using widows 10 pro at the host machine and windows 10 home on the client machine.

Thanks, would you also be able to screen capture the Host Preferences window, Viewer tab?

 

And then please also confirm the endpoint software version installed there.

OK @kmkoury , it looks like you're using LogMeIn Pro there, which has a different set up than GoToMyPC... 

 

If both computers are using Windows, and you're sending basic function keys like F5, then it should work by default. Have you tested this from an alternate client PC to confirm?
