Chapter 3. Navigating Within Acces > Using the Function Keys

Using the Function Keys

Access assigns specific purposes to all 12 function keys of the 101-key extended keyboard. Some keys, such as Shift+F4 (which you press to find the next occurrence of a match with the Find dialog), derive from other Microsoft applications—in this case, Word for Windows. You combine function keys with the Shift, Alt, and Ctrl keys to enable users to perform as many as 96 functions.

Global Function Keys

Windows, rather than Access, uses global function-key assignments, except for F11 and Alt+F1, to perform identical functions in all Windows applications. Table 3.4 lists the global function-key assignments.
