On my laptop I can't open any search bar because whenever I press F3 the brightness just goes up.

While i can't be sure, i would think, that the problem may be related to the function key (Fn) for your laptop. Many keyboards come with multimedia keys that allow such functions, so i would not be to surprised if your laptop had an extra symbol on the F3 key that was triggered instead.

Since i do not own such laptop, i show a part of an article i link below:

As it shows, there are laptops that require you to press the function key (Fn) to access the F1-F12 keys. While without you always press the multimedia/functional keys, to control brightness and volume and so on.

Not exactly Blender related, but i hope you can continue with your Blending.
