Reverse fn key so as not to have to press it to use function keys

Welcome to HP Forums,
I'm afraid, 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 behavior of keyboard keys in Windows. There are several free software apps for changing the behavior 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.
Have a great day!
