There is an option to turn off tab to the menus. It stops HOME from jumping to them as well.

Note the following 2 lines in the screen shot. You probably selected "Tab to action bar choices". Try the other one.

_ Tab to action bar choices
/ Tab to point-and-shoot fields

As expat suggested, I set my PF12 to CURSOR but use HOME for getting to the top screen when I'm in split screen.

What does CURSOR do?

I set F12=RETRIEVE (fairly conventional), and F24 to RETP.

It moves the cursor to the cmd line of the screen you're in. Home moves it to the cmd line of the top screen, if you're in split screen mode.

That is, if you select the right tab setting.

I don't use RETRIEVE any more. I use PF24 for RETP.
