It's not clear to me what you are asking. However, I have a Toshiba
Satellite A305-S6905 running Win Vista and I have no problem using the
function keys in Client Access 5250 emulation or TN5250J.
You mentioned Teamviewer. I'm not familiar with that product, but from
Google it appears to be free remote access software. I'd guess the
problem might be there, perhaps some configuration option. I assume you
are running Teamviewer on the Toshiba to remote into another PC which is
running 5250 emulation software. Or maybe I have it all wrong. (In a
former life I used the free LogMeIn for occasional remote access to my
desktop at work, where I was running Client Access, and I _think_ I also
used it on the Toshiba successfully).
If you think it is Toshiba issue, you go to pcsupport.toshiba.com and
you can get the manual for your machine.
Someone else mentioned the FN key at the bottom left of the keyboard.
That is covered in the manual, but on a cursory glance it seems it is
used to control the auxiliary functions (the little icons) on the bottom
of the function keys; e.g., FN+F9 toggles the touch pad on or off. I
didn't see anything about a capability to change what F1 thru F12 do.

HI - I've the Toshiba Satellite laptop and connect to the IBM i at my work
place using Teamviewer. I have on the laptop the F keys but I can't get
them to work, the only which works is the escape key, that is in place of
the F3. Any help would be highly, appreciated. Currently I have tried
control and F key, Alt, but it does not do the F3 or F5. or any F key
