Normally, the F1 up to F12 function keys on your keyboard have different functions depending on the software running. But sometimes they have the same function in the application as with Windows. Here’s a simple explanation citing some applications. In the F1 function key, majority of the programs that use this key is set to display the “Help” window. F2 has variations. In Microsoft Windows, this key is used to rename files. In Adobe Photoshop, this is the shortcut key for “Save As”. In Maxthon web browser, it is used to go to the previous tab.

F3 is used to activate the “Search” window in Microsoft Windows. In Servant Salamander, it is used to view documents and in Maxthon, it is used to go to the next tab. F4 in Microsoft Office Word repeats the last action. In Maxthon it is used to display the history. F5 activates the “Go To” command in Microsoft Office Word while in Adobe Photoshop, it activates the brush presets. The rest of the function keys are the same as described above. Their individual function differs on each software you use.
