By on December 27th, 2009

Natural keyboards usually have 12 function keys which provide users with several easy to use functions. However, not every function key is actually usable without key combinations. Few of these keys include F9, F10, F11 and F12.

Function Keys is a handy , which will allow you to setup shortcuts for the above function keys, so that you can quickly launch an application or document by pressing the function keys.

Once you download the software, just run it and setup the applications you want to open when you press the function keys, save you settings and your all set.

Techie Buzz Verdict

Function keys is a , however its requirement of .Net Framework 4.0, is something which will deter users from using it. I myself was using .Net Framework 3.5 and had to upgrade the .Net framework, to test the software.

Other than that, it is a decent download and does the job it is supposed to do. I tested this app on and it worked perfectly. However, you will need to download .Net Framework 4.0 to use it.

    I refuse to install the Microsoft .Net bloatware just to have a keystroke utility. I´ll keep looking for a pure win32 API utility… doing this can´t take more than a 30 Kbyte executable…

    Also, it´s silly for the author to restrict this to function keys…. how about other custom keystrokes?
