I would like to make my Fn keys 'sticky' (pressing it once equals to press-and-hold) to make activating some special functions with one hand easier. There's no relevant option in BIOS, and Windows' StickyKeys doesn't stick the Fn keys.

Is there a freebie that affords this?

There are some laptop manufacturers that let you make Fn key sticky. For example, Toshiba provides this utility for some models via Toshiba Accessibility software. The users manual says:

You can use the TOSHIBA Accessibility Utility to make the Fn key sticky.

Apart from that, some Lenovo models support this function via BIOS settings. I know, for example, T60p has a setting in BIOS:

Fn Lock: Enabled / Disabled

This lets you make Fn key sticky.

I don't know if there is a global solution for that matter, but you can check your laptop's accessibility settings or BIOS settings to discover if there is one.
