Hi santha and :welcome:

Generally the Function Keys are controlled by the program that is running. At the most basic level, that would be the keyboard program/driver for your keyboard. But sadly, you told us nothing of your computer or the keyboard. If you have a special keyboard, you need to install those drivers.

Normally, F1 will almost always bring up the Help file.
F5 usually refreshes a window.
F11, as far as IE is concerned, makes it full screen, but I don't believe it has any effect in Windows.

The other possible solution, if it's a laptop, may be one has to use the Fn key as well to trigger a function key signal. Dell are quite good at doing this with their laptops.

Good point. And F3 is often Find or search.
