How-to-Disable-fn-key-on-HP-Pavilion-All-in-one

HP Recommended

Just set up my HP Pavillion 27" all-in-one (27-d0072) and can't figure out how to disable the function keys.  I bought this to use Epic (an electronic health record used ubiquitously across the US) which relies completely on the function keys.  Saw this forum from last winter and WOW - after 2 pages of posts it seems the final answer is that HP removed the option of disabling the function keys from the all-in-one computer keyboards.  Are you kidding me?  Then this computer is useless to me.  If I'm understanding this thread correctly then I just spent $1300 on an all-in-one computer that is useless to me.  I either need to get a new keyboard or return it for a Dell?  My keyboard looks exactly like the photo posted by Lukam1.  HP support - please confirm this is true: that we cannot disable the function keys on the "all-in-one" keyboard.

@MGRL 

I don't have access to a keyboard layout for your model -- so I have to ask, is this a keyboard in which the top row of keys have three functions?  And to invoke the "function key" operation for each of those keys, you have to press the Fn key?

 

If so, then my guess is your real question is not how to disable the Fn key but instead, how to change these keys so that you no longer have to press the Fn key, right?

 

Sorry, but those keys can not be reprogrammed -- so you are stuck.
