 F1 = Back arrow button. Escape key can also be used.
 F2 = Windows Start button
 F3 = Search button
 F6 = Camera button that is pressed halfway
 F7 = Camera button that is fully pressed
 F9 = Volume up
 F10 = Volume down
 F12 = Lock device/Power button. Press it twice to see the lock screen.
 PAGE DOWN = When text box is highlight, moves visual keyboard down, and you can use your physical keyboard for input
 PAGE UP = When text box is highlight, moves visual keyboard up.
 PAUSE/BREAK = Toggle keyboard

~~ Happy Coding ~~
