Restoring the shift key

For some reason the function keys on my mac book changed, I restored them and now the shift keys have the function of showing the desktop and all windows.

I there a way I can restore the original function?

Do you mean the Shift keys that en/disable upper and lower case letters?

I think Shift can only be used as a keyboard shortcut if used with another key.

Give this a try. The most likely cause is the key being bound to the "speak selected text" option in Speech preferences.
