@BILLYBRIGGS,

 

Welcome to the HP Forums 🙂

 

As I understand that you would like to Enable Fn key so that you can use F keys without holding the Fn key.
Don't worry as I'll be glad to help you with your HP All In One Pc 24 - F0015na.

 

You can quickly access information or perform functions by using certain keys and key combinations.

 Action keys—Perform an assigned function. The icons on the function keys at the top of the keyboard
illustrate the assigned function for that key.

To use an action key function, press and hold the key

Hot keys—A combination of the fn key and the esc key, the spacebar, or the appropriate action key.

To use a hot key, brieƮy press the fn key, and then brieƮy press the second key of the combination.

For detailed information, please go through the User guide - Chapter 5. Navigating the screen. Page number 18.

 

You can also refer to this support document for - HP PCs - Keyboard Shortcuts, Hotkeys, and Special Keys (Windows)

 

You can disable or enable the Fn key functionality using the BIOS utility.

 

To disable or enable the function key (fn) in the BIOS follow the below steps:

  • Hold the power button for at least five seconds to turn off the computer.
  • Turn on the computer and immediately press the f10 key repeatedly, about once every second to open the BIOS setup window.
  • Press the right-arrow or left-arrow keys to navigate to the System Configuration option.

  • Press the up-arrow or down-arrow keys to navigate to the Action Keys Mode option, and then press the Enter key to display the Enable / Disable menu.
  • Select the desired mode:
  • Disabled: Requires pressing and holding the function key (fn) while pressing one of the f1 through f12 keys to use the action indicated on the action key.

    For example, on some computer models, if the Action Keys Mode is Disabled, pressing the f11 key will minimize and maximize a web browser if open. Alternatively, pressing and holding the fn + f11 keys will mute the sound.

    The action keys may vary depending on the model of notebook.

  • Enabled: Requires pressing only one of the f1 through f12 keys to use the action as indicated on the action key.

    For example, on some computer models, if the Action Keys Mode is Enabled, pressing f11 will mute the sound as indicated on the action key. Alternatively, pressing and holding fn + f11 will minimize and maximize a web browser if open.

    The action keys may vary depending on the model of notebook.

  • Press the f10 key to save the selection and restart the computer.

  • The function key (fn) option can be reset at any time.
