From the manual:

SETTING THE NUMBER OF DECIMAL DIGITS
Numbers of decimal digits of calculation results can be specified by pressing [C-CE] twice, then press [C-CE]and [M+] simultaneously.
The decimal digit assignment will appear as “F” (for “floating point”), “2” or “0” on the LCD. (The default is “F”.)
Press and hold [C-CE] and [M+] until the symbol changes.

CPT does stand for COMPUTE, on other calculators this is the COMP button, same thing, different name.
