I can not activate or disable the Fn key on the desktop PC. The keyboard was included.

HP Lifestyle wired keyboard TPC-P001K
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I can not activate or disable the Fn key on the desktop PC. The keyboard was included when I bought my HP Omen Obelisk computer.


The keyboard is constantly running with the Fn key. As a result, I can not use the keys F1 - F12, making it unusable for a gaming computer.


On the Internet write that it is necessary to disable the Action keys but I'm in the BIOS this option is not found. I didn't buy a laptop, but a desktop computer.


So I tried to use it with my laptop. I've disabled the option in the BIOS, so the integrated keyboard of my laptop works fine : I have to use fn for volume and so on, but no longer for F1 to F12. The problem is that when I connect the TPC-P001K to this laptop, again I cannot use F1 to F12 without the fn key, even it works with the integrated keyboard. 


Is this TPC-P001K that was provided with an expensive gaming computer really **bleep** ?

No you can't do that on external keyboards. You can re-program on some depending on applications.
