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

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?

The key might have been changed in Visual Studio itself.

Go to Tools...Options...Environment...Keyboard.

Put the cursor in the Press shortcut keys TextBox and hit F11. You will see what it is assigned to inside Visual Studio. The default is Debug.StepInto (Global).

You can reassign it using the interface provided.
