There are certain keys in every key that you have specific activities and that they are used sparingly, most people don't even know what they are. We are targeting keys Scroll Lock, Pause, etc., and explain what is used for each one of them. Certainly knowing your work will start to make the most of it.
There are many variations that we can find as "special keys" on keyboards, and we will actually talk about them below, many do not consider them special because they are common across keyboards. Keys are more prone to office actions there is something else, but they are used sparingly and most users don't know their work. Therefore, we will go on to explain what each of them does.
Print Pant / Pet Sis, Scroll Lock and Pause / Inter
These buttons are usually located at the top of the keyboard, just to the right of the function keys and in front of the number symbol. Let's see what each of them does:
- Print Package: This is arguably the most well-known and widely used: Print Screen. What I always did was the actual print on the printer shown on the screen, but now its job is to take a screenshot on the Windows clipboard so you can paste it somewhere else.
- Pet sis: one of these keys means "System Request". At present it is no longer used, but in the past its function was to issue a call order to the application. On Linux it is still used just for this.
- Scan Lock: Scan locks, whose function is currently running in other programs such as Excel. Usually with the directions we can move between the cells, but with the Lock Lock activated, the output of that sheet will be just to move as if using a mouse wheel.
- Stop / Int: It's just another key to abuse, and its functionality was to the point of stopping what the PC did, such as running a game. In Windows 10, if you press the WIN + Pause button, you will open program properties. "Inter" is designed for "interruptions."
Insert, Delete, Start, Finish, Page Up and Page Down
These keys are more commonly used than ever, and are designed for word processing and, usually, office systems. Let's take a look at its main functions:
- Enter: its function is "to install". Usually when we click between a word in a word processor such as Word, when we write we will add letters. If we press Inter, what will we do to add some of this text. We will have to force it again to make this work.
- Supr: widely used. If the delete key above ENTER is used to delete the letters on the left of the cursor, with Delete we will delete the ones on the right.
- Start and End: the start key is used to move the cursor to the beginning of the line, while the end key will use it at its end.
- Page up and Down Page: These two keys work to move the cursor equal to the page break, either down (Page Down) or up (Page up).
Also known as "arrows." Logically, its function is to move the cursor to four possible directions, or more or less, to the processors in the words. In the Internet browser they also work to scroll, while in Excel, for example, they will help us move between cells.
