How do I reset my laptop function key to original defaults?

Specs: Windows 10 Pro 64, AMD A6-3400M APU/6GB
After installing the latest Win10 update my laptop’s function key default has been set to “on”. This makes writing for a living a hell of a lot harder than it already is.

The laptop is a Toshiba Model L775D-S7226.
It was upgraded from Win 7 Business to Win10 Pro x64; but not from BIOS to UEFI.

Here’s what I’ve tried so far:

Entered both FN and Function into Windows Search without any results except web based ones (which seemed odd),

Pressing and holding FN with the below keys
alt
ctrl
delete
end
esc
home
ins
numLock
pgdown
pgup
shift
spacebar
Windows

Entered the BIOS, set it to revert to “default settings” and then re-booted.

Your issue is with Windows 10 and not your BIOS. Look in your accessibility features and see if there is a setting for it there.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

The L775D doesn't officially support Windows 10.

However, you can try to force the function key driver to install using compatibility mode.
