    Way to permanently switch meaning of FN-keys with Non-FN function?


    I need quite occasionally press keys on the top row of my keyboard like F2, F5, Print,....

    To get them I always have to press additionally (just before) the <Fn> key.

    I want to avoid this.

    Is there a way to switch (forever) the meaning of Fn with Non-Fn keys?

    Only for the top row of the keyboard.

    FN key always on

    If you press “Num Lock" (might also be labeled "Num Lk”) (I’ve also seen it labeled “Pad Lock” for numeric Pad) it turns on the blue keys, and inverts the meaning of the “Fn” key – it’s a way to use that embedded numeric keypad without having to hold down the “Fn” key the entire time. To fix it, just find and press the “Num Lock” or “Pad Lock” key again. (Note, sometimes these keys are themselves “Fn” keys, so you may, or may not, need to also hold down the “Fn” key to get the right function.) Often there is an indicator light associated with the setting.

    New laptop FN keys not working [Solved]

    Exactly what I was used to do, pressing the FN key with an F key but that didn't work....
    If I press the FN key I get f1 f2 f3 and so on.

    It was just the other way around, but I figured it out now.*Smile Way to permanently switch meaning of FN-keys with Non-FN function? :)
