the "f" keys are called "Function Keys" some have "universal" functions - F3 will bring up a "find text" function in most programs and "F5" will refresh the screen/web page etc. The other "F" keys get functions assigned by the program you are using at the time. You can also assign an un-used "F-key" to a deskop shortcut by right-clicking the icon, selecting "Properties" then click in the text box next to "Short cut key" then - Press the F-key you want to use as a shortcut for that Icon. (F number should appear in the text box). Click "save" or "OK" and close the Property box. Now press the F-Key you programmed into the Icon - it should execute whatever the Icon is for.. And that is was the F-keys do.
I believe you are talking about short-cuts on the desktop.
If you have the program on the Start Menu you can copy the shortcut there and paste it into the desktop to restore the icon.
If the icon produces blank pages, it may have been a program that required a specific command to install it. Once you have deleted it, the only way to restore the icon properly is to re-install the program and tick "put short-cut on desktop".
Try right clicking the program and running it with compatibility mode for a version of windows it ran in :) This should help, another option is "troubleshoot compatibility" when you right click it and it should take you through some steps.
I hope this helps! :) Feel free to reply and I'll try and help you even further.
hold down alt+f4 and select the icon for the program that is giving the volume icon, make a note of the name of the offending program, then press alt+f4 to close the program. Simply go to add/remove programs and remove the program if you want to, or look in its options to disable the volume display.
Page like icons usually indicate they have no program associated with them. If you couild provide a little more information about the icons (are they shortcuts, doc files etc) then I could help you designate a program for them. Sounds like you probably recently uninstalled a program for which they were assigned.
