how do i change my volume and where is the fn key in this keyboard

    Is it possible to control the master volume with some keyboard shortcut? I would prefer it to be without a use of some additional software.But if it isn't possible then the software should be pretty light-weight and not consume a lot of CPU/RAM. Thank you for your help.
    PS: I DON'T intend to buy a multimedia keyboard for that.
