Re: come to my rescue

I had the same issue when I first bought my laptop from HP.

If you search this issue on HPs sight there are instructions for reversing it back to the normal way of using function keys.  I do not remember where it is exactly but it was fairly easy to find doing a search.

If I recall it had to do with making a change in the bios but my memory could be wrong about that.

Evening gentlemen


I recently bought an HP laptop running win10.


I'm, however confused by the behaviour of the function keys.


All the F1-12 keys are inverted. I mean the following:


All the F-keys have a symbol on it. Normally you would press Fn + your to use it. On this laptop, it's reversed. The symbol is what you get when you press the button normally and you have to press Fn + F-key to get the usual action and sometimes even after pressing the fn key, nothing does what one knows.


The function keys with this laptop either mute or unmute the system with function key F6, for instance, and other function keys just do what one would not want them to do.


So, if I want to refresh a webpage, instead of just F5, I have to do Fn + F5


I want to change this to regular behavior. Would you please help?


Thanking you in advance.
