Question about Computers & Internet
Please see attached photo, this is what's happening, Nothing happens when I strike F1 or F2 keys. Any suggestions? Thanks.
What are you trying to do ?
a bit more information might be able to help you.
IE: what are you doing when this (pop up) occurs ?
and why are striking the F1 or F2 keys ?
Computer keyboards contain keys that, when pressed on their own or in conjunction with another key, provide shortcuts to performing functions, saving time and keystrokes.
On most keyboards, these are the function, or "F," keys that run along the top of the keyboard. "F1" and "F2" are members of this group.
F1 Function Key
Pressing the "F1" function key while you are in an application will bring up the application's help file.
Pressing it when you are not in Windows Explorer or on the desktop produces the "Windows Help" file.
If you are in an application and press the "F1" button along with the Windows button, you will get the "Windows Help" file.
F1 Function Key Combined With Other Keys
"F1" can be pressed with other keys to gain a variety of results and functions.
Press "F1" and the "Shift" key to start context sensitive help, or help for the application.
Use the "F1" key with "Alt" to go to the next field in an application.
Press "F1," "Shift" and "Alt" at the same time to return to the previous field in an application.
To display the Microsoft system information, press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "F1" at the same time.
F2 Function Key Clicking on an icon on your desktop and pressing the "F2" function key will put the icon into rename mode in the same way as right-clicking on the icon and scrolling to "Rename."
F2 Function Key Combined With Other Keys
"F2" when pressed with other keys combines functions commonly found in the application "File" and "Edit" menus.
To copy selected text, highlight the text and press "Shift" with "F2."
To view a print preview of a document, press "Ctrl" with "F2" when in a document.
To save a document, press "Alt," "Shift" and "F2 together when in the application.
To choose the open file command, press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "F2."
