My old Apple keyboard was able to "Hide or show all open windows" simply by hitting F11. Where did that go? Does that one-click function still exist?

    Go to:
    System Preferences/Keyboard

    Enable checkbox "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys"
    (near center of the control panel)

    Result: all function keys work as they did with the old clear-plastic with smoke colored keys Apple Pro Keyboard (USB extended keyboard from 2000).

    Note: you can get the icon functions to work by pressing the "fn" key (right under f13)
