See page 131 of your User's Guide. Lots of useful info in that Guide!

Under the "Toshiba Hardware Setup" heading starting on page 130, you will find "Keyboard " which states that the action of the Function keys can be changed.
This can be done in the BIOS but this way is much easier. I can't draw you a clearer picture!

This is what makes it so maddening for me ... I have tried that ... I went to the start menu and typed in HWsetup in the search box. I got the message "No items match your search". So, I typed in "Toshiba assist". Again, "No items match your search". This is where I'm at a loss ... I think I have to go the BIOS route ... since neither HWsetup nor Toshiba assist are showing any results in my search box of the start menu.

So you have Windows 7? Can't you go to HWSetup this way?
Start > All Programs > Toshiba > Utilities > HWSetup
If not, maybe through Desktop Assist (see the attachment).

Yes, I have Windows 7. However, when I go to the Start Menu and search for Toshiba, it is not there. Desktop Assist does not appear either. They simply just don't show up. Is there any other way to get to them?

Right, I understand what you're telling me to do, but when I go to the start menu, then All Programs and then search for Toshiba, Toshiba doesn't show up ... I can't click on it, because it's not there.

Try it this way. Start/Computer/C Drive/Program Files/Toshiba/Utilities/HWSetup.exe.

You're welcome! I know how frustrating it can be when we direct you somewhere and it's not there on your particular machine. I'm just glad we finally found a way. Now, just enjoy your computer.

A teaching moment. It means the folders and shortcuts that supply the Start menu are missing.
Since I don't have a Toshiba machine here, I don't know which of the two folders that follow they are supposed to be in. The first one is for the user who is logged on. Those in the second turn up on the Start menu for all users.
Open the two folders above by pasting the path into the Start/Search field.

The Toshiba folder and all its sub-folders is located in your second reference. The complete Start menu is there. In the first reference, there are only a very few files not including any Toshiba files. This is on my L775D running Windows 7. I am unable to find either folders on my L675D upgraded to Windows 8.

That makes sense, since they would apply to all users.
I am unable to find either folders .. Windows 8.
No Start menu there.
