What the F keys do.

Post by Dreamweaver » 27 Aug 2017, 18:22

I need this! :icon_biggrin:

But at the top of the opening page I'm told
RECOMMENDED: Click here to fix Windows errors and improve system performance
Is that safe?

I use Ccleaner and have done for years.

Any article that suggests you download software is to be regarded with suspicion, unless you're 100% certain it's a reputable site, which is difficult these days because so many get hijacked by hackers.

Take Buck's advice and trust no-one.

100% agree with Perrorist!

DW, that web site looks fake to me. It even has an odd looking Windows logo in it's headline.

If I was you, I would look for a better source of information in a reputable TECH Forum like "Whirlpool":

F2 is the key to open your BIOS.
If you don't know what that means, then don't fiddle with them and get a Techie to do it for you.

Forget these short-cut keys, they are not worth using at all....................unless you are an expert user!
