Function keys on the z500

Hi,

 

The default behavior of F1 through F12 keys on the z500 are set to perform laptop functions like mute, turn sound or brightness up and down and so on.

 

Is there a way to reverse the way F1, F2.. F12 keys work, so they work like on any other regular keyboard.

 

I use the basic functionality of the F-keys all the time, when renaming files, searching and so on, and I would like to be able to use them without having to press "fn" every time.

 

Thank you!

Re: Function keys on the z500

Hello, have you found any solution for this issue?

 

Anybody can help?

 

I can Imagine that's a feature to disable on BIOS, but I couldn't find anything related to FN keys

 

Thanks you guys

Re: Function keys on the z500

So I understand it so that the only solution is to use external software like softkeys.

I would like to ask Lenovo staff to add this feature into their next BIOS update. For me this reverse behavior of functional keys is a major annoyance working with my Z500.
