Question about Computers & Internet
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.
