Re: Performing NVDA Commands From Laptop

David Moore

Wow, I have a HP stream laptop, and that is how mine works. Also, I hold down the FN key to get the function keys to do their F1 through F12. Also, holding down the FN key and pressing the extended insert produces the print screen key. I love this, because it is so small, has a SSD drive, and I use a Micro SD card for more memory to store things.

Have a great one!

Hi Janet,

I also use a laptop that has an abbreviated keyboard, although it is not the same type that you have.

On mine, pressing function along with the arrow keys produces the functions you mentioned.

Function with up arrow performs page up.

Function with down arrow produces page down.

Function with left arrow produces home.

Function with right arrow produces end.

You might try these to see if they behave the same way on your machine?


Good luck,

 Hello Antony,

Thank you for getting back to me. My laptop is

an Asus-not sure if I'm

 spelling that

correctly-not sure of the model number but it's about 4


 old. It has a function key on the

bottom row on the left between the control

 and windows keys. On the lower right, beside

the control key, are the arrow

 keys which

are arranged in an up-side-down T. Any asistance you can


 would be much appreciated.

 I believe all

laptops have these key functions, even if they do not


dedicated keys for them.

 Most laptops have some sort of

"function" key which acts as a modifier (in


same way as shift, control,

or alt) to change the meaning of the key it is

pressed in combination with, and some of the

keys on your keyboard, when


with this function modifier, will almost

certainly act as home, end, etc.

 Tell us precisely which make and model of

laptop you have, and we may be


to suggest where the function key and the

modified keys for these meanings
