F keys is an abbreviation for Function keys. F1 through F12 keys may have a variety of different uses or no use at all. Depending on the installed operating system and the software program currently open will change how each of these keys operate. A program is capable of not only using each of the function keys, but also combining the function keys with the ALT and or CTRL keys, for example, Microsoft Windows users can press ALT + F4 to close the program currently active.

Below is a short listing of some of the common functions of the functions keys on computers running Microsoft Windows. As mentioned above not all programs support function keys and or may perform different tasks then those mentioned below. If you are looking for more specific shortcut keys and function key examples we suggest seeing our shortcut key page.
