I Use F12 To Save
August 2, 2017 2:53am CST
I learned a few years back that pressing F12 was the shortcut to Save on MS Word, so since then, I just hit F12 every once in a while while I'm typing something. I used to click the diskette icon with the mouse, or use the key combination CTRL+S. I just searched today what other F keys or Function keys I could use and found out I could use: F5 to refresh the page of the site I am on, for example, Mylot's Most Recent Activity Page. F6 to move the cursor to the address bar of my browser so I can type what I want to search or go to a different site, instead of using the mouse to click on the home icon, which is Google. F7 to check grammar and spelling on MS Word. I will tape a Post-it note on the monitor so I can remember to practice until my brain and fingers memorized it. What F keys or Function Keys do you usually use? If you want to know the rest, from F1 to F12, here is the link to the site where I got them:

I never use the F keys. I suppose I have never had a need to use them. I see that my F2 key on my new laptop lowers volume. I did not even have MS Word installed on this laptop since I never used it, but your post is of benefit to many users here.
