Chapter 4. Keys & the Keyboard > Fkeys F1–F12 or F1–F15

Fkeys F1–F12 or F1–F15

The Fkeys run along the top of your keyboard, that row of keys labeled F1, F2, F3, etc. Fkeys are used in many shortcuts, as you can see in the menu to the left.



If you’re using an application in Classic (see Chapter 39), you can press F1 to undo your last action; press F2 to cut an item, F3 to copy, and F4 to paste (see pages 210–212 for explanations of undo, cut, copy, and paste). In Classic you can also program the extra keys yourself: use the Keyboard control panel and click the button “Function Keys....” But in Mac OS X, you cannot program the Fkeys.
