How to bind Function key to run specific application

I’d like to bind F12 to run a specific software, how do I do that?


edit: a MOD invited me to add further details, so here we go.

current scenario: if I press my F12 key on the keyboard, using Manjaro (you guessed it), nothing happens.

desired scenario: I press F12 and a specific software (calc, Blender, whatever I choose) starts running.

Depending on your environment but usually there is a config for it. E.g Xfce under keyboard settings hotkeys

You can try Application Launcher -----> System Settings -------> Workspace -------> Shortcuts for a starting point.
Hope this helps…
