    It's function is to send a signal that the F1 key was pressed to whatever program is currently active. As for what that signal means, it's up to the program that receives the signal. There is a generally standard meaning that most programs are written to adhere to. The question seems almost academic, as if it was a test or interview question. Can you give a business reason for needing an answer? -- Tom
