how to change the way you use the FN buttons

HP Recommended
HP Spectre x360 Convertible Model 13-ae010ur
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Could you please help to know how to change the way use the FN buttons?

How to on/off the brightness/sound and etc. with buttons Fn + F1,2,3...?

Because now these functions turn on/off without button Fn. 

Thank you.

You should be able to change how the Fn works in BIOS under system configuration.

Turn off the PC by holding the power button. Turn on PC and repeatedly keep pressing ESC until the startup menu appears and then press F10 to enter the BIOS setup. In system configurations set "Action key mode" to disabled.


Hope it helps,
