Refresh Key

Please can anyone tell me which key refreshes the page. I can use the two arrows at the top of the page, but F5 only does the brightness

Right click on the desktop , down to refresh on popup menu. If your hands already on the mouse, this is the quickest way.

F5 here too. You are pressing the key on it's own aren't you.

Thanks Barefoot Kid, F5 has always controlled the brightness, & does not refresh the page. I have only had this computer a few months, but have not found out yet which key refreshes the page.

Was there a program that was installed that assigned the f5 key to a brightness control ?
