At war with F1

After implementing the double F1 solution a few moths ago, I now get continuously bitten by the change. I keep pressing F1 just once and then wait for help to come up only to remember that I need to hit F1 a second time. It probably doesn’t help that MSDN from Visual Studio takes a long time to come up the first time, but eventually I realise that I need to hit F1 a second time.

It’s a war between my automated single F1 press for help vs my misfiring over from the ESC key. I will keep the setting how it is though. Forgetting the second F1 press isn’t as bad as accidentally hitting F1 instead of ESC.
