Passing F (Function) keys from Mac OSX to Windows on TeamViewer

Hi guys, I hope you can help me.

I am remote-controlling a number of Windows machines from an iMac, but whenever I press the F keys, in spite of having enabled the send remote key combinationsoption, they do not transfer and the equivalent function on the iMac is activated.

To give an example, the keystroke for renaming a file or folder in Windows is F2, but if I press F2 whilst I have a file highlighted on TeamViewer, my screen brightens (as F2 is the default brighten screen key on the iMac keyboard).

Any help you can provide would be wonderful.  Thank you so much :)

If it's any help, I am using TeamViewer 15.3.2682 (build date 14 February 2020) on the iMac, and TeamViewer 15.4.4445 (build date 20 March 2020) on the Windows PCs.

I'm sure it's probably frowned-upon in this community, but bump.  Has nobody experienced this issue apart from Ihanna and I ?

Do the F keys pass over correctly from Mac OSX to Windows for the rest of you ?  Because I can't see how that can be the case =/

Thanks so much for your time
