HP EliteBook 1040 G4 INS key missing

HP Recommended
HP EliteBook 1040 G4
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Ciao, 

 
 I just bought a lovely HP Elite Book 1040 G4 (1EP84EA#ABZ). 
There isn't Ins buttun, widely used by me for pasting in a unix environment. 
Already try Fn+e but it does nothing.Also keyboard on screen is not a solution (virtual enviroment issue). 
 Has anyone found a way to map a working combination?
 
Many thanks in advance.

did you try a key remapper tool? for example, https://lifehacker.com/the-best-key-remapper-for-windows-5883003

 

I work for HP. However, all opinions and comments are my own.

Ciao, 

I managed to map "ins" key . 

I wanted to use the phone keys since I don't have the SIM module, but I didn't find a way. I therefore decided to sacrifice the F11 - Wireless button, quite useless for what I think. 
The key code for F11 is #122, so i used the half teach mode achieving this result:

it's quite intuitive. 
 
I understand that this is the HP forum and not a keyTweak support, but I hope the post is accepted as it could be useful to other users of this wonderful laptop. 
Ciao !
