Hi,

 

How do I lock FN keys, for F1...F12 works as standard keyboard. No multimedia keys without press FN. 

Keyboard and mouse comes included with desktop.

Thanks.

 

Best regards,

Daniel

hi
unfortunately the only possible solutions currently are software, or hardware replacement
There is a solution, but that is to block the key, and you may break the keyboard
Unfortunately either this is not suitable or user feedback

Does your current keyboard have a "FN LOCK" key? If so, press it, once, to "flip" the action taken by each of the 12 F-keys.

 

Or, purchase and connect a "standard" keyboard that has no "FN" key.

Test-drive various keyboards at a retail store, looking for one that you like the most.

Compare to a guitarist walking into a musical instrument store, and test-playing several guitars, to find the "best" tone and other features.

Hello,

 

Thank you all, for your feedback.

Unfortunately, none of the solutions worked for me, I will have to buy a new keyboard. 

But I must say, "physical" blocking the FN key is well thought 😀 but is not suitable for me.

 

Best regards,

Daniel

Hello
Yes, there are two solutions, I don't know if I gave the link of the two ..
But indeed, this is not what I recommend, there are keyboards at all prices!
the one I cost me about twenty euros and it's been running for a long time now
Please mark the solution, in order to help others.
