Can't find the FN lock and num lock for Pavilion Desktop - TP01-0026no using keyboard TPC-POO1k

Pavilion Desktop - TP01-0026no
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello,

I am blind, and use a screen reader that uses commands with the function keys F1-F12 and the numbers on the numeric keyboard with num lock turned off. And I use the normal Windows keyboard shortcuts a lot.

Since I bought this computer, num lock is on, and I have to press the function keys together with the FN key, to make the function keys work as I want them to (the traditional behaviour).

I have looked in the BIOS (UEFI), but the only related setting was the option to turn num lock on or off at startup. I also have tried lots of keystrokes that possibly could work as a FN lock switch, such as FN+ESC and FN+shift.

 

Thanks in advance,

Pelle_R

Hello and thanks for the reply,

I solved the issue by simply changing the keyboard to one without an FN key. This made the F1-F12 keys work the traditional way.

Unfortunately, I cannot click on the thumbs up icon, because it is inaccessible to my screen reader.

 

Best Regards,

Pelle_r
