How do I turn on keyboard backlight on envy 4t-1000

So, I got my computer yesterday and I've been fiddling with it since then. But, for the life of me, I can't figure out how to turn on/control the keyboard backlight. I don't see any obvious buttons or controls when I search the start menu. So, I'm wondering if I'm just not looking in the right spots or if it computer just didn't come with the backlight I ordered.

I looked at one guide on hp backlit keyboards and it showed the f5 key as a possible controller, but mine is just black with a little f5 in the upper corner. I'm kinda leaning toward hp messed up when building it, so I'd like to confirm that so I can start trying to get money back.

Hi,

 

If it had a backlit keyboard, it will "glow" by fefault. Anyway you can try one of these methods:

 

  • Press and hold the fn key and then press the space bar .
  • Press the F5 key.

Regards.

Okay, yeah, no backlight then. It wasn't lit up when I got it and neither of those do anything. Thank you!
