In FAR bottom bar (keybar) changed is you press and hold classic modifiers (Alt/Ctrl/Shift). This way you can see what action particular combination executes. This is very interesting solution to multitude of the keys typical for keyboard oriented reprograms, but unfortunately it was not extended to other dialogs and is implemented non-uniformly. But some dialogs at the bottom contain most important key combinations you can use. For example you can use F10 for selecting targets in Copy, Move and Search dialogs.
Keep in mind that those key assignments originated from Norton Commander which was released in 1986. At this time XT keyboard was used, which has two column of F-keys at the left, not 12 keys above the letter keys like newer AT-style keyboard have. Due to this origin of OFM key assignments, there is some significance between adjacent F-keys on XT keyboard F-keys. For example F3 - view, F4 editor or F5 -copy, F6 -- move.
If you use programmable keyboard with two columns of macro keys at the left you can emulate XP keyboard for FAR (for example Logitech G110 )
