Windows 7: F5 Command Key

F5 Command Key

I got a brand new Dell Inspiron 17R today (and i love it with the i5 processor), but the only problem is that to use the Function keys you have to hold down Fn to use them because of all the other keys sharing the same one, and I was wondering if there is any I can change the F5 default function of refreshing whatever you are on and put it on F6 since there is no other command on that key, but Function 6, itself. Thanks!

When your computer is starting up press F2 to enter into BIOS settings page. Click on System Configuration > Function Key Behavior. Now you can change how your Function Keys work.
