Looking at the documentation you need to have your braces around just the F1. Try this to see if it works


From above link by enclosing the ^ and + in the braces you are sending the literal character.

The plus sign (+), caret (^), percent sign (%), tilde (~), and parentheses () have special meanings to SendKeys. To specify one of these characters, enclose it within braces ({})

F1 {F1}
F2 {F2}
