Change Function Key Settings

Omen by HP Obelisk 875-0xxx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When I press an F1-F12 keys they perform the function but I would like this to only occur when I press "Fn+F1-12". I checked in the BIOS and there is no option to change it unlike other HP BIOS screens I have seen. My keyboard does not have a function lock key and I could not find a setting in Control Panel, System settings, nor the OMEN Command Center. This page also does not help.

Change Function Key Settings



Welcome to the HP Support Community. This is a great place to get support, find answers and tips to your technical queries. I have reviewed your post and I understand, you are trying to change the functionality of the function key.


Appreciate you trying the steps. Don’t worry, I’m here to help! 

This is by design and it cannot be modified in the BIOS. Some notebook computers use a feature called Action Key mode that allows you to perform the secondary action without needing to press the Fn key first. But your desktop PC does not. The Fn key is a special key controlled by hardware. It cannot be remapped using the software.

Hope this helps!


Let me know if you have any other questions.
