Hello, I have the Toshiba Satellite C855. The function keys which you usually have to hold in the function keys for now have priority over my normal function keys (F1, F2 etc.).

Basically you have to hold the function key to use F1 etc.

I play a lot of games and such that use the normal function keys so this is really annoying.

I've looked up ways to lock my function key and none of them seem to work, can anyone help me please? :(

Oh yeah I already got it solved, but thanks for the help anyway :)
I had to go to:
>Start menu
>All programs
>Toshiba
>Tools&utilities
> (HW Setup)
>Keyboard

and where it says "Function Keys Mode" change the option to "Standard F1-F12 Mode"

Note from Bwinsky : for windows 8 on a toshiba : search "function key"
slide the notification bar to "on"

Hi donagheypeter,

Some of the System Setup (BIOS) have a setting called as Fn/Function Key Behavior. If you disable this function, Fn key will not work in Windows. If your computer BIOS has one of such BIOS, try disabling it in BIOS.

Do reply with results.
