Is there a way that I can use like F1, F2, F3, etc to open a specific form? I would like to have an options form but not have it to where anyone can access it unless they know the Function key to use.

It seems like that code easily be done by settings the main forms keypreview property to true and in the main form handle its keydown event

Private Sub Form1_KeyDown(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles MyBase.KeyDown
        If e.KeyCode = Keys.F1 Then
            Dim f As New Form
        End If
    End Sub
