Reverse FN key function

HP Recommended
Pavilion Wireless Keyboard 600
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)


I just bought HP Pavilion Wireless Keyboard 600 and connected it to my HP Pavilion Power 15-cb009nu. I want my f1-f12 to work normally

and if I want volume control to have to hold FN key  but it works the opposite way. On my laptop things are fine though. Settings in BIOS are correct, My laptop's keyboard is working correctly but the wireless kb is not. I tried fn+esc - not working. Please provide a fix (if you ask me to bring the keyboard to a service in my country - I am returning the keyboard and getting my money back)

@Martin_Bulgaria This can often be toggled with an “Fn Lock” key, which functions like a Caps Lock key. Toggle the Fn Lock on and the keys will function as if you’re holding down the Fn key all the time, just as the Caps Lock key makes your letter keys function as if you’re holding down the Shift key all the time.


Depending on your keyboard, you may actually have a dedicated “Fn Lock” key. If you don’t, you may have to press the Fn key and then press an “Fn Lock” key to activate it. For example, on a few keyboards the Fn Lock key appears as a secondary action on the Esc key. To enable it, we’d hold Fn and press the Esc key. To disable it, we’d hold Fn and press Esc again. It functions as a toggle just like Caps Lock does.


Perhaps, you can send a picture of your keyboard, or simply click here to confirm if this is your keyboard, also the lock on this particular keyboard is on the far right corner, this with the Fn (function) key should do the trick.
