    Toshiba Satellite C55D-A reverse FN key?


    Anyone know if there's a way to reverse the "polarity" of the FN key on Toshiba Satellite C55D-A? All I can find is sticky key or notification settings. I'm looking to have F1 - F12 work like on desktop keyboards and hold down the FN key to adjust brightness, volume etc..

    I found it. I could not find anything in Settings screens. I went to the Toshiba folder under Program Files (x86) and there was an exe file SystemSettings.exe. Click Keyboard. From the dropdown box change from Special Mode to Normal Function Key Mode. Now I can kill a window with Alt F4 and no FN key. Yay!

    Edit: you have to restart for it to kick in. The quickie restart from the Power thingy in Settings does it just fine.
