    Hey guys,

    Quick question, I have the Black widow Chroma keyboard, and instead of pressing the fn key and the pressing the desired F button in order to play, skip, pause, mute, etc my default music player, I want to be able to just press the key. And if I actually want to press the F6, F7, etc I need to press the fn key and press the F. (what I'm pretty much saying is that I want the F keys to do it's other function without the need of pressing fn). I've researched this but I cannot find a simple way to do it and most of the times it doesn't work, even with going into my BIOS I can’t find anywhere to change it. I've also tried setting macro keys for this but the software doesn’t let you record the fn key press.

    Thanks in advance if anyone can help and understands my English :D

    I'm curious about this exact thing. Hopefully someone has an answer.

    You can assign your keys to me multimedia keys with Razer Synapse by selecting your desired key and choosing the 'Multimedia' option from the drop down menu. This should give you another drop down menu with multimedia options.

    Thanks for the quick response (at least for me)! Just for the sake of clarity, you mean that they will work as media keys without having to hold the FN key?

    Yes, the keys will work as multimedia keys. Locking this thread as the question has been resolved.
