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...

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
