http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Function_key says : F1 Help F2 Rename F3 Search F5 Refresh (could be 'build' or 'compile' in an IDE) F10 Menu F11 Fullscreen
... and here's the mapping I would expect for no particular reason. F1 Help F2 New F3 Open F4 Save - Option F4 close F5 Refresh/Run F11 Maximize/Fullscreen And some other things that should be mapped : - Search - Settings - Minimize/Hide (F12?) Overall, I feel these keys should be assigned with 2 rules :* Be system-wide, work in (mostly) any application. Most have 'new' or 'help', 'rename' is not so frequent * Map to things in the menu bar or decorator, as the top of the window physically matches the top of the keyboard.
