disable function key?

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

how do I change function key to multimedia key? I'm sick and tired of holding FN and any f1-f12 key to get it to work. I want to disable or turn the Fn key off


can anyone help me?

 

things I have tried

1. f2 at start up and couldn't find a menu or anything where I can edit anything at all.

2. I open up the window mobility center and there no option to turn off fn key.

 

laptop that i own

MPN 15AX250WM

HP Omen Gaming Laptop Core I7-7700hq Processor 12gb RAM GTX 1050ti

 

edit: Nvm I figure out how to get to the BIOS settings because Window 10 had a strange way to do it, posting the steps below, hopefully it help others

  1. Press Windows button and select Settings.
  2. Select Update & Security from Setting options.
  3. Select Recovery from the left menu page’s of Update & Security.
  4. Click Restart Now under Advanced startup.
  5. When system restart, click Troubleshoot.
  6. Next click Advanced options.
  7. Select UEFI Firmware Settings or other options.
  8. Click Restart.

@Meow56 Welcome to HP Community!

Here's all you need to know about disabling the function (Fn) key:

 

Many notebooks feature a setting that allows you to use the action keys functionality without pressing the fn key each time.

Use the correct steps based on your notebook type to enable or disable this functionality.
