I've been thinking about keyboard issues again. I'm real close to up and ordering a batch of custom keyboards. But before I finalize my design, I'd like some feedback on your keyboard usage.
Please elaborate on your answers in comments and stuff.
Do you use your keyboard's function keys?
Do you ever use Caps Lock, except by accident?
Do you use the Numeric keypad?
Yes, both the numeric and navigation bits of it
Yes, numbers only
Yes, navigation only
Do you ever use the Insert key, except by accident?
Personally, I don't use the function keys, I don't use Caps Lock, I don't use the Numeric keypad, and I don't use the Insert key.
If you do use the function keys, how and why? Is there some application-specific binding that you use, or is there some cross-application binding that's become popular? For instance, F1 is usually a Help key, and F11 seems to sometimes full-screen various applications. Or is it that you rebind them yourself to something useful? If so, what?
