HP wireless keyboard Function keys don't work unless fn is pressed. No way to change this.

Does HP think no-one uses F-keys?? Deeply disappointing that the showed no understanding of customers.  It would have cost nothing to have got this right.

Thanks Prométhée, but I had already researched the forum and concluded that using a different keyboard is the ONLY way to get normal f-key function.   I'm sorry but I do not think that a "solution" to a keyboard design problem is to "throw it away!"  HP could I believe create a new BIOS containing an option to fix this.

Yes, Indeed, but I don't know what your keyboard looks like!
It may be a shame to actually part with it.
But for some models we can see that the whole budget is not in the keyboard, I quickly replaced mine
We went from this:to this :

 I give you the existing solutions here, I know well that it can not suit everyone, but it must be claimed directly from HP, here, it has very little impact ..
After that this function does not exist for desktops, unlike many laptops, to see if at HP they are ready to develop new bios, while it does not bother so many people ...!?
