SAS function keys

I like to clear the log and the output window before I run each analysis, so I've set up a function key, F3, to clear all windows. I can then recall the previous code using F4, followed by F8 to submit the code.

Function key definitions can be changed by going into the keys window (type keys in the command line), changing the definitions and then choosing 'Save' from the file menu.

The function keys I use are as follows:

F1 help
F2 dir
F3 log; clear; output; clear; pgm; clear; zoom on;
F4 recall
F5 pgm; zoom on
F6 log; zoom on
F7 output; zoom on
F8 zoom off;submit
F9 keys
F11 command bar
