Q - question

How to disable the F1 key?

A - answer If you are frustrated by unintended launching of Help window when you hit the F1 key instead of the near ESC, you can switch off (suppress) this key, resp. map it to another, empty function.

Run the CUI command and expand the "Keyboard shortcuts" > "Shortcut keys" section". In the command list at the bottom select a "harmless" command, e.g. Cancel (by pressing "C"). Drag this command to the "Shortcut keys" section. In the bottom right panel Properties, set the access key for this command - select the item "Key(s)" in the Access field and click on the ellipsis button "...". In the field "Press new shortcut key" hit the F1 key. Save your settings.

The Help window can be then started through the pull-down menu or using the 'HELP command.
