Reverse function keys on wireless keyboard

HP Recommended
HP Envy Desktop TE01-0014
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Just bought a new HP Envy desktop. It has a wireless keyboard. Currently the function keys are set to multimedia (i.e. pressing F2 lowers the volume). In order to get the F2 functionality for Excel, I have to press the FN key and then F2.


I would like to reverse that, so that I can just press the F2 key in Excel without having to press the FN key 1st. 


Googled this a lot. The 2 answers given were a long time ago. Pressing FN and ESC didn't work. Trying to access the BIOS didn't work. Any ideas out there?

@GaryM3 , welcome to the forum.


Unfortunately, most OEM manufacturers are defaulting to the Fn + F key for their Multi-media keyboards.  You may be able to change this by using  a third party app.  However, I am not able to make a recommendation.
