right, so i had the following problem. all keys work, all leds light up. the only only two keys that were not working properly were FN and menu, whereby FN was just a normal winkey and menu did not work at all, even though the led is lit. so i found out that this is a matter of firmware flashing. i flashed the firmware to the "no animations" just to get the fn key working and to get rid of the stupid unicorn vomit animation :) so the FN key is now functional and i can manipulate the LED brightness and turn them on/off, but the menu key still does not work. the led under it is lit, but for instance when i select a file in windows file explorer and press menu, nothing happens. i'd expect the context menu on the file to appear. i have already tried a different switch in its place (since they included a switch puller, which is awesome :) still it's the same situation.

so it's likely a firmware issue, not a mechanical failure. wonder if anyone else has this problem.

Hey - I noticed that the default layout has the 'menu' key, but it needs to be set as the 'app' key. Here's what I set it to in the configurator. Try this, then flash it, and it should open the context menu for you. Hope that helps.

Drop F1 thru F12 behaving like Mac
Could someone post or direct me to a post of an example of configuring the Drop CTRL function keys to behave like those on a Mac keyboard? For example, instead of using Fn+PgUp to increase the volume, I would like to simply press F12. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Concerning Drop + Invyr Holy Panda Switches.
Are people not incorrect saying the stem have the legs "broken off" when in fact the stem was just an incomplete casting? When taking the switch apart to lube, there are no pieces of the "broken" stem legs inside the housing. So how did the stem legs become "broken?"

High pitched whine on CTRL?
Recently I've noticed a high pitched whine coming from my Drop CTRL if I have the LEDs turned on at all. It's quiet but clearly noticeable and is driving me crazy. I had assumed it was a USB issue so I tried both ports on the CTRL but no change. I tried different ports on my PC but no change. I was using a Custom cable so went and tried the USB cable that came with the keyboard but the whine was still there. Anyone else have this issue?

CTRL making weird high pitched noise when lights are on.
I just noticed (when I put my computer to sleep and could only hear the keyboard) that when the lights are on, the keyboard is emitting a very high pitched whine-like noise. It sounds almost like this, but with a higher pitch and not as loud as the video makes it seem.: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJxlNDliSUs Questions: -Is this a normal occurrence for CTRL boards, or could I have received a defective one? -If you HAVE experienced it, how did you fix it? Also worth noting... My USB port should definitely be generating sufficient power. I've had multiple other RGB boards connected, and have never experienced this issue.
