My problem is that I would like to somehow "lock" the FN button, since many programs require interaction with f1-12 buttons and it is not very convenient to constantly press the FN button, I have searched many Internet sites, but they all do not help solve this problem on this laptop model. I hope for your help, thank you!

Hello @Modens .
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 keys 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 in Sleep mode as printed on the key.
Press the f10 key to save the selection and restart the computer.
