Hello,
when i press F1.2.3.4.... the functions like brightness/dull/mute,etc occur. whereas if i want to use shortcuts for F1,2,3 (like spell check in excel for shift +F7), i need to use fn key+F1/2/3....
can i inter replace this function?

If this is a laptop, there might be a setting in the BIOS to fix this. I know on my Dell, I had to set a setting to make the F keys act normally.

Changing that setting in the BIOS won't disrupt your files. Again, that's the only way to fix that issue.
