Function (FN) Keys Bar

This bar gets its name from the function (FN) keys it represents. For each button on this bar there is a corresponding function key that performs the same action. This bar is derived from the design of the first twin-panel file managers and the FN keys usually act the same way with two changes: the F2 key is used to rename files and the F9 key will open a terminal at the last local path that the active panel pointed to. Mkdir F7 can create whole directory trees on the fly e.g. foo/bar/test. You can choose to display or not the FN keys bar when starting up Krusader via the Konfigurator Startup page, and you can toggle its use in the current session with the Settings menu. The actions and Key-Bindings performed by the function keys are configurable since version 1.51, they will remain active with or without the FN keys bar displayed.
