    I think F14 and F15 do brightness of your screen down and up respectively. F13 takes screenshots in World of Warcraft... :)

    Whatever you do, don't press "Clear". It formats your hard drive.

    Not sure what F16 is for. Maybe for war time.

    Okay I really have no idea what "Clear" and F16 do. I guess "Clear" works on the calculator to clear the screen.

    Yeah if they don't do anything I just propose you press them if you get frustrated. At least you can't hurt anything you're working on.
