    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.

    No, it's a hardware thing, have to work with differing Operating Systems. I have worked on a few Notebooks that actually have the traditional markings reversed but can't give a specific make and model, memory bank loses its indexing at times. Some Operating Systems can take over their functions but I wouldn't count on that.

    Peter,

    These settings are always controlled by utilities installed by the computer/keyboard maker. You can only change the setting permanently if they have provided a means of doing so.
