Product: HP Pavilion Wireless Keyboard and Mouse 800
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)
Hi, I have recently brought this keyboard (HP Pavilion Wireless Keyboard and Mouse 800) and since I started using it the F keys are inverted.
For Example: Instead of having the F2 key as the default option when I press it, it is using the Volume Up function instead. I have tried toggling the Fn key on the keyboard but it doesn't do anything.
I use the F keys when navigating and running VBA code, so having to hold the Fn key every time I was to press F5/F8 is infuriating.
The latest keyboards from HP are considered to be Multi-media. For this reason, they make the F keys default to the media functions. You may be able to find a third-party app that will allow you to make the change. However, I haven't heard of one myself.
Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.
After looking on YouTube I believe there was an option in Windows 7 to change the keyboard multimedia setup but I cant find a suitable solution for Windows 10. I hadn't considered looking at third part apps though so Ill keep looking.
