Fn key locked on Acer Swift 3 Notebook, how to turn off?

I just bought an Acer Swift 3 Notebook and the fn key seems to be permanently locked so I don't have to press it to change volume and things like that but it makes some keyboard short cuts like alt + f4 extremely annoying. Anyone know an easy way to turn on and off the fn key?
Thanks

    Thank you so much for your reply, i found the problem and solved it.

  • What was the solution to the problem? Did you have to change the keyboard function in bios?

    @Stilu check this function "function key behavior" in bios.
