    Disabling Fn Keys


    I'd like to disable the Fn keys on my new HP latop. Or, better said, I'd like to have F1-F12 functionality normally, and when I press Fn, the Active Key Mode (screen brightness, audio, etc) is used. This was super simple in a BIOS environment and damn near impossible in a UEFI environment. Can anybody help me?
