Dear Experts,

I am running Delphi 7 on Windows 7.
My IDE is all of a sudden having a little strange.
To toggle between unit and form you normally would use the F12 key but this stopped working now.

Any idea why this is not working anymore?

Kind regards.

Is this the only F - Key that stopped working, or all of you Function keys are not working?

sometimes other apps use shortcuts too

often F12 is used for monitor application software
nvidea uses this key too ...

or winamp ...

or others ...

you'll need to find the app using that shortcut key
and then disable or alter it in the other app

if you have GExperts installed (from gexperts.org)
you can alter the shortcut using (Gexperts Menu / IDE Menu shortcuts ...)
