Control Center > Regional & Accessibility > Keyboard Shortcuts

This is where "global" shortcuts are defined-- things dealing with 
windows and desktops and such.  It might be defined in there, in which 
case you can select it and change the shortcut to "none".

Control Center > Regional & Accessibility > Input Actions

This is where you can define your own global shortcuts-- keys that 
launch applications, adjust your speaker volume, etc.

K Menu > Settings > Menu Editor

This is where you control application shortcuts.  (Note that the Menu 
Editor entries are also in the Input Actions area above.)

In the latter two, you can define a new shortcut for the F12 key, and 
KDE should prompt you with something like "This key is already assigned 
to Beagle Search" (or whatever) and you can elect to override it.
