Windows 8 - Determine what application / process "owns" the F11 key.

Last Modified: 2015-07-23
When I'm using Visual Studio, the F11 key doesn't work. Other F-keys (F5, F12...) work fine in the application. I'm pretty sure I inadvertently assigned F11 to another application or process. Is it possible to determine what application or process currently "owns" the F11 key? Alternatively, is it possible to configure Visual Studio to "take back" the F11 key when it is the active window?
