    Try holding the fn key down along with the F-keys and delete. On most of the laptops it's the key in the bottom left of the kb.

    is any other way to use F keys directly without holding others ?

    You can make the F-key behavior the default in System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Keyboard -> Use all F-keys as standard F-keys.

    You will then have to use fn to change volume etc...
