ELITEBOOK

 

I bought Hp ELITEBOOK recently. The laptop was totally different when it comes to plaacement of mouse's left and right click buttons. Also the function key was also different. 

 

Unlike regular Function key in other Hp laptops, in ELITEBOOK it is very different. When we press F5 key, it results in speaker getting muted. So every time we need to click Function (Fn) key and then press F5 to refresh page.

 

I identified solution to this problem. Sharing it as it might help others with same problem.

 

Click the Function(Fn) key and then press teh Shift Key.  Light will glow in the Fn key. Then you can start using the F series keys as in other computers.

 

If you want to reverse the functionality, do same action. i.e., press Fn key and Shift key. Light will get off.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi,

In BIOS you can also reverse the function.

 

Hope it helps,
