You can simply selec Tools - Startup and uncheck "Use Access Special Keys".
You also can find some workarounds in here:

Please ignore my first comment. F12 doesn't belong to Access Special Keys.

create a macro

from the database objects window, select macro > new
click the Macro Names icon from the tool bar to show the Macro Names column in the macro designer window
in that column type  {F12}    include the curly braces
save the macro as  AutoKeys  
done...
