I have a laptop HPG62-B17sa, which has a keyboard layout in which function to get the operation of function keys from F1 to F12 , one needs to press the 'fn' key as well. Normally pressing the function keys have other functions mapped to them like brighness increase/decreas, volume increase/decrease. This gets painful while I am debugging some code using Microsoft Visual Studio wherein i need to use F10 step over, F11 step into, F5 run, etc. I need to press the 'fn' key as well while doing that, and that is cumbersome.
Is there any solution to this, such that I can by changing layout/some setting/shortcut for keyboard, the 'fn' key appears to be pressed continuously because of the setting? Then I can just use the F1 to F12 keys alone as i need.
How can I do this?
