Function keys
« on: September 23, 2005, 12:09:59 AM »
Hi

I use the F keys to launch and not the digit keys. As the keyboard has 12 Function keys, why not allow all 12 F keys to work. If the use of digits is turned off, then the targets could be numbered 1 to 9 then 0,1, & 2.

This gives 3 more hot keys.

Chris

i think this makes a lot of sense, especially now that you can use alt and ctrl to launch stuff.
so how about labeling 1-9
and then a-z

with f10 -> a
f11 -> b

etc

I would accept a-c for F10 to F12 but I prefer 0,1 & 2; it seems more logical.

Thanks

Chris
