What are you using it for BTW? What should happen, and what does happen.

F11 by default is for Desktop. Go to System Preferences, Mission Control, and turn of anything that is on for F11.

Working in Excel.

The task is to:
drag over the range A3:D8 to select it. Press F11. The chart immediately appears on a new chart sheet named Chart1. Contextual tabs for working with the chart also appear.

---------------

The reason I got Windows and Parallels was because some Windows commands in Excel are different than the Mac version.

Using OS X Preferences:
a. Open System Preferences ► Keyboard ► Keyboard Shortcuts
b. Change shortcuts so that F8-F12 are left unused by OS X

I deselected F11 and F12
