Bought a new computer and had to d/l the game again. F12to open the console no longer works.
It varies by manufacturer. If there's an Fn key, hit that and F12 at the same time. That works on my Asus laptop. My previous HP required Control and F12 at the same time.

Or maybe I have it backwards: Control/F12 for Asus and Fn/F12 for HP, but you get the point. Just play around with combination of keys/F12 until it works.
