There are 2 ways to do this:

 

1.  In start menu, type "Keyboard" and choose the Keyboard option that appears under "Control Panel".  There is a tab "ThinkPad F1-F12 keys", and you can change the option to "Legacy" to use F1-F12 buttons as standard function keys as you wish.

 

2.  Reboot the system and press Enter at the ThinkPad logo screen.  Then press F1 to enter BIOS setup.  In the "Config" menu, choose "Keyboard/Mouse".  Then change the option for "Change to F1-F12 keys" to "Legacy".  Then press F10 to save and exit.
