Default [Q] Surface RT Type Cover Fn Lock

Is there a way to enable Fn lock for the Type Cover? I hate when the F keys are assigned to random stuff, but usually there's a way to turn it back. I haven't yet found one on my Surface RT; does anyone know if it's possible to make the F keys behave like actual F keys?

Edit: messed up the title but whatever

You can edit the title & thread subject line by editing the first post, FYI.

If you find one, please let us know; I've been looking for one myself. I use F2 (rename), Alt+F4 (exit), and F5 (refresh) a ton, and it's very annoying on the Touch cover, especailly due to the Fn key being on the right side.

Ideally, though, I'd want to be able to keep certain keys as their alternate forms by default. I use End and Home far, far more often than I use anything F9-F12.

Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.

You could probably do that with AutoIt.
Don't PM me for help, post on the forums. I won't respond to basic questions.
