SHIFT+F6 doesn't work for Windows 11


Hi, I have PyCharm Edu 2022.2.2 installed on my Microsoft Windows 11 22H2 laptop. My laptop is a Dell laptop with a 11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-11390H @ 3.40GHz   2.92 GHz processor. I have been doing the PyCharmLearningProject Course and I am on the Refactorings section. When I attempt to do Step 1 which is Shift + F6 to rename the teams field, my laptop dims the brightness of the screen instead as F6 is for dimming the screen brightness on my laptop. What should I do, any help would be greatly appreciated?

Thanks in advance,

Perhaps you also need to hold the Fn or a similar key because your laptop doesn't use function keys without it.
