How to remove F1 key from register?

#1
I need to have free F1 key for another application than Windows Help. This application try to set key map in register - F2 is free, F3 is free, F4 is free, but F1 not. Where is this binding (F1 -> Help) in register? (Not in another place - but in register.) Thank you!

I have looked into this and it appears there is absolutely no way to do it in the registry. You can try something like Autohotkey, but I tried creating a script for that for you, and I'm not even sure that works in Windows 8.1.

The registry has lots of F1 references because of backwards compat way Windows is made... Ime muking about here will just end in a bsod at some point.

OK, so my application try to registry F1 for itself. How can I release F1 for it?
