I am Using Lenovo (Windows 10). I have installed the IBM iSeries and configured IP address. But, while trying to do program or some other works, the function key didn't working normally. It acts as actual key function in Windows.
It is working when press Fn +(F1...F24). Kindly Advice me!.
Note: I am using Lap keyboard not external keyboard.

    Please clarify "I have installed the IBM iSeries". Did you install an emulator? Which one?

    if you need to press F3, press the F3 key at the top of the keyboard. If you need to press F15, hold the shift key and press F3. Fn greater than F12 hold the shift mentally subtract 12 and press the appropriate Fkey. I have told people it is just like converting  military time regular time, if it is after noon, press the shift key and subtract 12.

    Are you using client access or another emulator? If the i-Series is looking for a specific function key, and you try pressing that either by the function key itself ( F1 - f12 )  or Shift+F1 thru Shift+F12  (F13-F24) are you getting an error? If so what is it?
     
    Nice tip Azohawk, some people just can't seen to grasp that and telling them it works like military time may help them.

    Thanks Todd, it was something that I came up with at a previous employment where everything had to be recorded with event, time (military style), and signature. So it was a very easy concept for them. Other times I get a deer in the headlights look.

    What emulator are you using? Do you have the capability to map your keyboard?

    What model Lenovo? It might be a mapping error like Splat mentioned. I have a laptop as well that has a separate Fn key..
    It might be if you are using client access and you want it to function you will have to go into keyboard mapping and map the function keys and save the map when done.

    And the Lenovo W520 that I'm using right now has a separate Fn key, yet my IBM i emulator that I use (IBM i Access Client Solutions for Linux) has no problem with F-keys -- the Fn key isn't involved at all, and it's a default install with no custom mapping. If I tried to use something like Q3270, though, it'd be very different; and a keyboard mapping would be necessary.
