functions keys

HP Recommended
pavilion wireless keyboard and mouse 800
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Is there a way to block the functions keys f1, f2, f3,... to always use the windows functions?

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

Suggestion for the next Pavilion wireless keyboard model: add the possibility to switch on/off the functions keys with a light on the "fn" key. Also a light on the "num lock" key. Like on a Microsoft Surface Keyboard.
