Disable Function Key

Product Name: HP ProBook 450 G5 Notebook PC
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)



I have 2 Questions


First, How can I disable Function Key on Pro Book 450 G5? Means F2 should work without pressing Fn for editing. I tried to search in Bios but could not find anything.


Second, My laptop shows "Limited Network" (Yellow Sign) after few minutes and then work again within few minutes. This process is repeated continuously. I have checked form others Laptops, there is not any issue in connection.

Re: Disable Function Key

Hi there,


The action key feature is enabled at the factory. You can disable this feature by pressing and holding the fn key and the left shift key. The fn lock light will turn on. After you have disabled the action key feature, you can still perform each function by pressing the fn key in combination with the appropriate action key.


Hope this helps.

Re: Disable Function Key

Where is the option to PERMANENTLY disable this stupid default fn key behaviour? There is no way that a sane individual would ever want a "sleep" or "disable WiFi" button on their keyboard that is one accidental press away, why do "designers" persist in this nonsense?
