Welcome to the HP Support Community!
I reviewed your post and I understand that you want to disable multimedia keys and use function keys instead.
Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.
You need to check in the BIOS whether you have an option to disable the action keys. If the option is not available in BIOS then it is by design and you will not be able to disable the keys.
Here is how you can check in BIOS.
Change the action key setting from the BIOS Setup Utility.
Press and hold the Power button for at least five seconds to turn off the computer.
Turn on the computer and immediately press the f10 key repeatedly to open the BIOS Setup Utility.
Press the right or left arrow key to select the System Configuration menu.
Press the up or down arrow key to select Action Keys Mode.
Press the Enter key to display the Enabled / Disabled options.
Press the up or down arrow key to select one of the options.
Enabled: Does not require pressing fn to use the actions printed on the function keys.
For example, pressing f8 lowers the sound as printed on the key. Alternately, pressing both the fn + f8 minimizes and maximizes a web browser.
Disabled: Requires pressing fn to use the actions printed on the function keys.
For example, pressing f1 opens a help window. Alternately, pressing both the fn + f1 keys puts the computer to sleep as printed on the key.
Press the f10 key to save the selection and restart the computer.
Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!
