How are values assigned to "F" keys in XP?
Also, how can I set opening of files/folders to open in a list rather than thumbnails?

Don't understand the function key question? But keys are identified by their scan codes, i.e. that's how the OS knows which one was pressed.

As for Explorer display, open Windows Explorer. In the View menu, select Details.

1. On an ancient laptop I have, you could assign values such as a number or data value like " Hi Joe Shmo" to each function key. It was very handy for oft used values. Can that be done with XP Home?

2. When I click My Computer, it brings up a list of a:, c:, d:, etc.
When I click on a:, it shows the files on the floppy disk with folder and notepad icons in a large size. Every time, I have to go to View and click List. Where can I set it so that it opens with the List view?

In Windows Explorer, go to Tools->Folder Options
Hit 'Apply to all folders', in the View tab.
