@felipemaca, welcome to the forum.

 

I am not familiar with the Wave, but you can try my suggestion.  I believe that you can go into the BIOS by tapping F10 while the computer is booting.  Then, look for an entry Action Key Mode.  It will either be Enabled or Disabled depending on how it is set.  I believe that you would want it set to Enabled.  This should allow you to use the F keys without pressing Fn.  If not, set it to Disabled.  When you have made the change press F10 to exit and save the changes.

 

When in the BIOS be extremely carefull not to change any setting other that the one the you want to change.  You can render your compute un-bootable. 

 

Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

I wish that I could help you, but I can't find any information on locking the Fn key.  If it were me, I would go through the settings in the Control Panel to see if you can find something.  It may be in the Windows Mobility Center.

There is no BIOS setting in Wave about Fn key.

Japanese support center told me that Fn key setting does not depends on BIOS setting but keyboard Driver setting.

But HP keyboard driver has no setting  about Fn key.

Support said they can't help just now (but they will  be  able to help in the future)

 

So all you have to do now is using other keyborard made by other maker.

I use WINTEN bluetooth keyboard. It work.
