HP Envy 14: use function keys as normal

Hi,

 

I have an HP Envy 14. The function keys f1-f12 have been set up so that the you have to use a fn keyboard combination to make the keys work as normal function keys.

 

What I would like is the reverse: normal keypress is normal function f5=refresh etc. And fn+f1-f12 = special function, increase brightness etc

 

Is there a way to do this?

 

Kind regards,

Marc

You Can disable that functionality by disabling "Action Keys Mode" in the BIOS...

Here is the document, that will help you with it... http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02035108&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_US

You work for HP and you use Comic Sans? Business 101: Nobody likes Comic Sans. But thank you for your answer; it was very helpful. :cathappy:
