        F3        Return
        F4
        F5
        F6        MVS Quick Ref
        F7        Page back
        F8        Page forward
        F9        Toggle between TSO sessions
        F10
        F11
        F12

To add functions to the PF keys, at a "Command ===>" prompt within a ISPF screen, type:

    keys

This will bring up the Keylist Utility screen, displaying the current PF key settings:

Tab down to the key you wish to set, type in the Definition, and then Exit the screen by pressing the PF3 key. Please do not change pre-set PF function keys, or you will not be able to access Help, to exit programs, etc.

For a listing of PF function definitions and codes, see your ISPF manual.
