Enable F Keys. keyboard hsa-p003k (I believe)

Hp Pavilion-XA1014-24-R

I just bought this Computer and I was wondering how to enable F keys for the keyboard. I was to disable action keys and enable F keys. I have looked at several documents online and I have also gone to bois at start up and I am unable to find the function. If anyone can help me that would be great!!

I want to use the F keys over the actions keys. what do you suggest? For example, I want the f keys to be primary without having to press fn

@Daneilb
Thank you for posting back. 

this is by design and the computer does not have the action key mode feature. You must first press the Fn key to perform the secondary action of a function key - the action of the printed symbol on the key. 

 

Additional software is required to change the behaviour of keyboard keys in Windows. There are several free software apps for changing the behaviour of keys; such as Sharpkeys, MapKeyboard, KeyTweak, Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator, and others. Search the Internet for the name of one of these software applications or "keyboard mapping software" to find and learn more.
  
NOTE: The Fn key is a special key controlled by hardware. It cannot be remapped using the software.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
