Function Key Remapping

Is there any easy, fast way to remap the function keys on a Surface 2 Pro Type Cover other than individually with remapping a program? I want the F keys to work as simple F keys, not the media keys. When I need them I'm happy to select the FN key for those purposes.

I only have original Pro but if you Press “Fn” + “Caps” keys simultaneously to set the lock and remove the lock.

Took me ages to find this and It is easy to forget, also no tool-tip or confirmation is is not obvious when it's on/off

Yes, that works on a Surface 2 Pro. Thanks, Jon. Unfortunately it also redefines PgUp, PgDn, Home and End. All I really want is F2 and F5 to be changed. The others can stay the same. I guess I'll go back to remapping individual keys.

 

That begs the question: is there a source for all the myriad Windows 8 keyboard shortcuts? I know of Winkey+ E, X, Q, R, D, I and now Fn+Caps. I'm sure there are many more.

Actually, there are several windows 8 apps you can download from the app store. Do a search on "windows 8 shortcuts". Several free options are available. The one I use has 4 stars and has 1,075 reviews (Windows 8 Cheat Keys).  The other apps have considerably less reviews.

      I've been lugging around a BT keyboard for my surface pro since release day.
       
      I'd like to spring for a type cover keyboard (do not want the touch)...but I went to the local BestBuy and noticed that the model type cover keyboard is fuzzy on the back. The fuzzy back looked terrible (maybe thru heavy use as a demo). It looked frayed at the edges and starting to pill on the main surface.
       
      What is the point of the fuzzy surface?  The touch cover doesn't appear to have this, although I may be mistaken.
       
      Are you supposed to flip the keyboard around and put the fuzzy side against the screen when you close it? If that's the case, will the keys scratch the screen if you don't?  
       
      For those of you who own one, does the cover look terrible after normal use?
