Function Keys

Technical Support
I am not sure if this is in the right place to put this, but here goes.

I just got an HP Pavilion DV7 laptop, upgraded from my old HP. My old keyboard shortcuts included the function keys- however, on the new models to use F1-F12 you have to hold the the FN key. If you simply press F1, for example, "help" pops up, minimizing WoW. However, holding down the FN key while playing is sort of annoying. While I can remap my action bars, I would rather not- So I was wondering if there is any way to change this?

Thanks in advance,

Nothing in WoW, no - any change would have to be on your computer and in its software.
My laptop is the same way. To change this function, you'll have to go into the system BIOS of your computer when you first start up the computer.

I would recommend searching online for the exact instructions on how to do this on your computer so you do it correctly. But that is how I was able to change that. :)
Thank you for the help, Cerylia- I'll look up how to change it.
