How do I disable Action Keys

HP Recommended
HP All In One Desktop
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I need to disable the Action Keys.  I don't want to have to push the fn key in order to access a function key like F1, F2, etc.  There is no bios option for this.

Meanwhile, I must let you know that the action keys lock among other usage of function keys can only be used on laptop's, commercial devices and certain wireless keyboards, the function to disable the same or toggle as such, is not available by design, changing or tweaking registry to achieve these changes can be done, however, HP doesn't recommend or support the same.


I hope that answers your query,
