I cannot afford to pay the additional $39. I tried the second method without success. For method one, what does the shortcut key look like?'

Usually it is has blue letters on the key, and says Fn. You hold that down and then click on the F* key that shows a small blue picture of your touchpad. On mine it is F8.
