Using keyboard instead of clicking  submit

I'm programming in classic asp / JavaScript. 

Okay, I have a screen full of *.mdb Records. Each  record is designated  by a radio button. I click a  record button and then click Another radio button to tell The computer what to do with it, and then  click submit. Instead of all that, I would like to just click that record and then press a key, like F6 for edit, F4 for move, F10 for delete, Etc. At the present time all I have to do is just press enter to activate a function that is default, but that's only one function. Just point me in the right direction and I'll figure it out.

You can use keyevents for that for example:<!DOCTYPE ht

l<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>

<h3>Trigger Button Click on Enter</h3>
<p>Press the "Enter" key inside the input field to trigger the button.</p>

<input id="myInput" value="Some text..">
<button id="myBtn" onclick="javascript:alert('Hello World!')">Button</button>

<script>
var input = document.getElementById("myInput");
input.addEventListener("keyup", function(event) {
  if (event.keyCode === 13) {
   event.preventDefault();
   document.getElementById("myBtn").click();
  }
});
</script>

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>

<h3>Trigger Button Click on Enter</h3>
<p>Press the "Enter" key inside the input field to trigger the button.</p>

<input id="myInput" value="Some text..">
<button id="myBtn" onclick="javascript:alert('Hello World!')">Button</button>

<script>
var input = document.getElementById("myInput");
input.addEventListener("keyup", function(event) {
  if (event.keyCode === 13) {
   event.preventDefault();
   document.getElementById("myBtn").click();
  }
});
</script>

</body>
</html>
