You can do that if you want to have problems using
screen review or object navigation. Even if you do this, does that mean
the function keys are returned to their free state? I don't know.
Maybe they just won't do anything.
But before degrading NVDA when it may well not be
necessary, what kind of laptop are you using? Laptops that don't have home
and end keys usually have some combination that will work as home and end.
I don't know what that combination is most likely to be, but it may be the fn
key and this or that key used in combination. Others will very likely have
suggestions to try or may be able to check documentation.
Also, are you completely sure there is no home and
end key? My laptop has small home and end keys that don't look anything
like standard computer keys in a horizontal row of very small keys that are
above the main keyboard. Once, a computer user discussed this question on
a list I'm on and, after considerable discussion, she found that the home and
end keys were present in an interface more or less as I described.
