Just had a thought.
Something I don't remember seeing much of, is use of function keys in programs.
So my question is this.
Does anybody use Function keys, and if so, is it on any kind of regular basis.
And, is it pre-programed into the program, or something you setup?

I don't use Function keys much, but they either come pre-programmed into the piece of software, and/or you will be able to assign certain functions/commands to a key/combination of keys. For example, in Notepad++, if you click "Run", and go to "Modify shortcut/Delete Command", you will be able assign commands to a combination of keys. Same under "Settings" -> "Shortcut Mapper"

Yeah, I've seen a few like
I was just wondering, the function keys were much in usage back in the day with more programs using more of the keys.
I'm just wondering how frequently:
1) The programs are assigning use to them
2) How many people are aware / use them
3) How many of the keys are in use
4) And if there are more than one way to access a function, do you use the function key or an alternate? ( Ctrl + S? etc.)
