I don't see "macro" in my keyboard but I see "Fn", I think it's other key which can use for calling program with just pressing two key macro+w as example to run MS Word.

I believe the macro key is used as a sort of shortcut access button. You can exchange other key strokes that you use often for this macro key. It is used a lot in gaming.
