    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?

    System Preferences > Keyboard & Mouse > Keyboard Shortcuts

    System Preferences > Exposé & Spaces > Exposé > Keyboard and Mouse Shortcuts.


    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.

    I don't see how that could be it. That option does not allow just the shift key.
