Windows 7: How to disable pressing fn key?

How to disable pressing fn key?

I'm on an Asus laptop win7 64bit and the shortcuts on the "f" keys like brightness, volume, and other little things require me to press fn+f10 for example to mute.

Is there a way so I dont have to press the "fn" key to use the "f" key shortcut? Like on Macs?
I am not the most tech savvy so if there is a simple tutorial or instructions that would help me a lot, thanks.

Yes you can change the behavior of Function keys from Function keys first to Multimedia first or vice-versa.

Simple restart your laptop and press F2 or DEL key to enter the BIOS utility.Use Arrow keys to navigate the various tabs n choose "Advanced" tab.Scroll down to Function Keys behavior. Press enter and choose Multimedia keys First.Save and exit and restart your laptop.
