turn on normal function keys for gaming

I have a HP Envy 6 1040-ca.  The F1-F12 keys are replaced with shortcut keys such as volume up/down, brightness up/down, WiFi on/off, etc...   The F1-12 keys are accessed by holding down a 'fn' key at the bottom of the keyboard.  This is great except for gaming, where I have macros and other commands bound to the F1-12 keys and need to access them without holding down the 'fn' key.  Do you know if there is a command or toggle in the Control Panel to turn the F1-12 keys back to normal?

 

thank you
