Keyboard Function Keys
A function key is a key on a computer or on the computer keyboard which can be programmed so as to cause an operating system program to perform certain actions.
The function keys are arranged at the top of your keyboard numbered across from F1 to F12 and are commonly referred to as F keys or FN keys.
The keys provide some interesting shortcuts for common computer functions that can be useful tools in everyday computing.
The keys are frequently used in combination with other keys such as the CTRL key, the ALT key, and the SHIFT key.
