Ultra keyboard how to DEFAULT to Function keys

I don't know who the "genius" was who thought putting the "Zz" (SLEEP) key on the F2 key on the "Acer Elite USB keyboard" and at this point I don't care. What I am trying to find is how to DEFAULT the keyboard so that the FUNCTION KEYS are the default press, and you use the Fn key to use the other options. I like the keyboard itself, its size, and ALL of the other keys, except that silly F2 key! Is there a driver I can download that will flip those options?

There is nothing in my BIOS setup that allows me to override the functionality, so I'm hoping a new driver file will be the answer.

Thanks!

    Hi Xavier70,

    ​ May I know the model name of your unit.

    If the BIOS doesn't have a swap option (double check by using the Ctrl-S key to toggle advanced mode on if the BIOS supports it) then the only fix is a different keyboard.

    it says on the bottom of the keyboard "DKUSB1P0HP"...clear as mud...I think the key is hardwired, and that's not what I would've done...
