Well, generally the F1 key is for launching the help menu. The other keys have various functions depending upon your keyboard and the software you are working on.
CTRL+F4 generally closes the particular page or software you're on (like clicking the X button at the top right of your page) and the CTRL+F5 is for refresh.
This can vary depending on your keyboard, and I suggest you go through your keyboard manual for exact details.

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

I need to know what are the function keys on a keyboard


Hello earthaalford:
Your function keys are usually located on the top row and are labeled F1,F2,F3 and so forth. The function of those keys depends on what program you are currently operating in ie: Windows, Office , Word, Excel or any number of other programs.
Hope this helps, if it did just click the thumbs up.
Sincerely, Peter N.

I use MacBook Pro (OS X version 10.5.8) in combination with LCD TV, wireless mouse and new Apple wireless keyboard. The problem is that function keys of the wireless keyboard do not respond in a same way...


Make sure to run all available software updates as there's probably a firmware update for your keyboard you need to download.

If there isn't or the problem persists afterwards, you'll need to go into Apple Menu > System Preferences > Keyboard and Mouse > Keyboard and uncheck 'Use all F1, F2 etc. keys as standard function keys.'

Good luck!

Advise uses of all F Keys.?.


Hi,

F1

Almost always used as the help key, almost every program will open the help screen when this key is pressed.

Windows Key + F1 would open the Microsoft Windows help and support center.

Open the Task Pane.


F2

In Windows commonly used to rename a highlighted icon or file.

Alt + Ctrl + F2 opens a new document in Microsoft Word.

Ctrl + F2 displays the print preview window in Microsoft Word.


F3

Often opens a search feature for many programs including Microsoft Windows.

Shift + F3 will change the text in Microsoft Word from upper to lower case or a capital letter at the beginning of every word.


F4

Open find window.

Repeat the last action performed (Word 2000+)

Alt + F4 will close the program currently active in Microsoft Windows.

Ctrl + F4 will close the open window within the current active window in Microsoft Windows.


F5

In all modern Internet browsers pressing F5 will refresh or reload the page or document window.

Open the find, replace, and go to window in Microsoft Word.

Starts a slideshow in PowerPoint.

My wifi is


Use the "Fn" key in combination with one of the F Function keys(example - F1 F2-F3 etc.) above the set of numeric keys. It will be a dual symbol key, meaning it will have wireless icon printed on it or the word "WiFi" in addition to the F number. It is usually one of the first 3 or 4 F keys. Remember, the "Fn" key must be pushed at the same time. It is a key combination like using <shift> and a regular alpha key to put a letter in CAPS.
Hope this helps Fixa! I am online if you need further help.

How do I get a "CAPS LOCK" indicator or light to appear?


Most keyboards now a days usually tell you on screen whether or not the caps lock is on but its possiblbe that when you press the key yowards the left or right hand side a light goes on or possibly in the top center if this is not the case then you may have a faulty keyboard.
