The function keys are lined along the top of the keyboard; labeled F1 through F12. These keys act as shortcuts, performing certain functions like saving files or printing data.
  • F1: If you press F1 while working in a program, help for that program will usually appear.
  • F2: In Windows, this key is commonly used to rename a highlighted icon or file.
  • F3: Search feature for many programs including Microsoft Windows.
  • F4: You can repeat last action performed while typing in Microsoft word. You can close all running programs using Alt + F4 key and Ctrl + F4 press for closing all active windows.
  • F5: Used as a refresh key in many web browsers and other applications.
  • F6: This key is used for moving mouse cursor to writing web address at the address bar.
  • F7: Normally the F7 key is for a “spell checker” but this key can be reassigned, depending on your configuration and software.
  • F8: It can perform several functions, and does not have an assigned Windows default. However, when starting Windows 2000 or Windows XP, holding the F8 key will boot in Safe Mode.
  • F9: Opens the Measurements toolbar in Quark 5.0.
  • F10: F10 activates the menu bar in many programs. Use shift + F10+ mouse for an external function.
  • F11: It is a full screen shortcut on most of the programs.
  • F12: In MS word we can use this key for saving our document and also opens up developer tools window in most of the browsers.
