I have a Windows XP computer. On my keyboard, on the top row, I have the following keys: F1, F2, F3, F4, F5, F6, F7, F8, F9, F10, F11, F12. Can anyone give me a web site which will tell me exactly what each of those keys do? Thank you very much. Murrar

Each key's function will vary depending on what application you're using, so you should consult the user manual for each application.

Go Start/Help and Support. Look to the left and you will see what your looking for. Windows keyboard short cuts.

Certain function keys have dedicated uses in Windows, but they can have different purposes when you are using them in a particular application, particularly games.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
