I need the functions keys to act like F1-F12 instead of the various operations they represent. How do I change them back to the legacy functions? Help!

Your code for F4 doesn't seem to work; it's still sending a close command. As far as I can tell the button is currently reading as Alt+F4 (or !F4 in ahk shorthand), not sending a Browser_Stop command.
The line for F5 also doesn't seem to be doing anything... but it looks to me from ahk's key history thing like it's already just sending an F5, instead of doing anything different? More testing is required.
F6 perplexes me, because you seem to have the right code but it doesn't seem to fix the problem; I'll work on that later.
extends what you're doing to the F10 key.
Unfortunately F7, F9, F11, and F12 are apparently working at a level below what autohotkey can read and interrupt. I might have some ideas for that, but they'll take time and expertise I don't have at the moment. But this so far is enough to upgrade from unusable to minorly inconvenient; we seem to have the left hand's keys all functional, and I won't have to worry about accidently closing things all the time.

Ok this was very frustrating not able to use f1-f12 keys as normal ones. I did as given in the links.
Go to this web site.
Download autohotkey. Install it.
Open any folder in your system.
Create new > should give you an option to create a autohotkey script.
Create new one with pasting the following:
#NoEnv ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
; #Warn ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.
SendMode Input ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir% ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.
Right click > compile > it should create an exe > run it
Viola you should see a autohotkey icon on your system tray and the functions keys should work like old ones.
