I don't understand your question -- as you can not disable a specific key.

 

If what you're asking is how to switch Fn+F1 to using just F1, then look into using SharpKeys -- as it is a free utility that allows you to remap individual key functions, and that might allow to you remap the F1 key to Fn+F1 ... and so forth for the other key combinations.

Hi WAWood , Thanks for the reply , i will try to explain. while working on applications like AutoCAD each F button has a special purpose special function built in the AutoCAD.
Since FN button was introduced to regular keyboards from the laptop world it disturebs the quicker work.
On every PC sometimes under BIOS you can switch back the F buttons to be regular F  buttons  and not dippendent on the FN+F combinations.

I understand -- but I have no access at all to the BIOS settings for your model PC, so I have no way of knowing whether or not you can make that key setting change.

 

I offered you an alternative in terms of an app that might be able to do what you want.

The answer to this question lies in the support community of Autodesk AutoCAD.

 

As far as I know, You can restructure the use of various keys in the settings and properties section of the version of AutoCAD you use.
