HP Pavillion Keyboard 600 remapping help #362

HP Recommended
Hp Pavillion 600 keyboard
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a question. I own HP pavillion 600 keyboard. There is a small print button just above the backspace button (as in the picture). I usually inadvertently press the Print button instead of pressing Backspace.

I want to change this. My request is when I press the Print button, I want it to type another key such as Ctrl or Insert button, something which won't have any effect when pressed not on purpose.

I tried Wİndows Power toys for this, the keyboard manager. But, the problem is when the program asks me to press the key which I want to change, I press the Print button but it sees it only as a "P" letter, not as a Print button. That is so annoying. I also tried other keyboard mapping softwares such as sharpkeys or auto hotkeys but they also see the print button as the "P" letter when I press the Print button to change it. Sİnce they all see it as "P" letter, when I type the normal "P" in my keyboard, it does not work. But it does not make any sense at all. I want to change only my Print button to be something else such as a Ctrl or Insert button so I don't want my "P" letter to change.


So briefly, when I want to change my Print button, the normal P letter goes as well and I can't press the P anymore.

Edt: or I would like to block that Print button but I don't want P letter to be blocked as well.


Is there any work around this?

Pleaese help.

@rickiman -- Is there any work around this?


I can think of three:

  1. take a lot of sewing thread, and wrap it round-and-round the key, so that it cannot be pressed downward;
  2. pop the key-cap off the key, to leave the socket empty, so that the "finger" on the bottom of the key-cap cannot mechanically activate the key;
  3. use a different keyboard.
