the keyboard system settings may allow for assigning functions to keys F1-F12, but I am a noob. I do not know what to type in the command box in order to cause the volume to increase when I press F10, to cause the volume to decrease when I press F9, to cause the WiFi to turn on (or off when the WiFI is already on) when I press F3, etc. That it what I need help with.
Any help with what needs to be typed in the command box would be greatly appreciated.

A web search for “Dell Chromebook 3180 keyboard” will produce a picture of my keyboard layout. It’s not exactly what I want, for example, screenshot and WiFi on/off are more valuable to me than backward, forward, and refresh, but getting this keyboard layout would be a massive step in the right direction.
I cannot find the relevant layout model. Any help in finding the relevant keyboard layout would be greatly appreciated.
Technically, commands are actually program calls (with relevant options). So most of the functions you seek should be available, though i don’t know those right now.
This also means that a few ones – Go back, Go forwards and Fullscreen – are rather application behaviors, and thus depend on the application used in. So i don’t think you can set those shortcuts this way. In those case, using xmodmap or xbindkeys may work instead.
Have you tried the Chromebook and all Dell layouts?
Hi, I have the same problem as OP. Perhaps I can be more clear. From the keyboard settings menu (application shortcuts tab) I wish to assign “volume up” or "sound up’’, “mute/unmute” and "volume down to the F1 F2 and F3 respectively as those keys have little volume control pictographs but as of installing Manjaro, they do not work.
I think the question we both have is what do we type into the editbox for mute/unmute specifically to assign that function to F1, Volume up (to assign F3key) and volume down for F2?
Some of these commands we already know such as copy and paste etc. what are the commands for sound control so that we can make these edits?
Yes, that did work. Thankyou for redirecting my attention as I had misread the first time. So what would be the command for setting the keyboard backlight bright/dim, and lastly the media player functions rewind, play/pause, fastforward?
This was very helpful however I dont have xbacklight my computer informs me upon trying to function key my screen brighter. Upon installing it notifies me of a conlict with Kvantum which will be removed. Is this appropriate or can Kvantum adjust the backlight with its own set of commands? how would I set the keys? Or should I uninstall Kvantum and go with xbacklight?
