    Pretty much the Fkeys on my alu keyboard F15 - F19. I don't think they do anything. All the rest on the alu keyboard are pretty self explanitory.

    Yeah the F1-F10 key seem pretty much pointless

    I use FN + F1-F12 for photoshop actions.
    But there primary uses are used all the time. (brightness, volume etc)
