Purpose of Keyboard Icons

HP Recommended
HP ENVY 27 inch AiO Desktop PC 27-cp0000i (4E0F8AV)
Microsoft Windows 11

P/N M54674-031P/N M54674-031

This is the keyboard that came with my PC, but I can't find any information within HP or the internet on what all of the special keys (with icons) do.   

So, can anyone send me instructions for my particular keyboard or answer the following questions? What is the purpose of the icons on these keys:

F10 (Showing a screen with a remote control)

F12 (Showing a screen with vertical bars on either side)

The clip board to the right of the magnifying glass?

What do the three keys to the right of the ‘clear’ button do?

Wjat are the smiley face and the microphone keys for?

What happened to the print screen Key?

 

I have add that the clipboard key (to the right of the magnifying glass) does not appear to copy anything to the clipboard. 

 

So many questions when a simple document within the keyboard box would have helped immensely.

 

All help appreciated. I have downloaded various documents on HP keyboards, but I can't find anything that answers these specific questions.

Hi, thanks for trying. but the PDFs you provided links for did not help.  I have managed to work out what most of the keys do, but I would still appreciate help on those shown below.  I've created PDF with all of the keys with icons on my keyboard and would be happy to share this with everyone once I get clarity on the use of the keys listed below.  However, I can't see a way of uploading a document to the forum. Is this possible?

 

In the meantime, others may find this document useful if they want to know what some of the keys do on their keyboard, not just the keys with icons. Hope it helps someone.

I thought that this may open the camera, so I attached one and tried it. This is the screen that popped up!

And when you select this button, you get an offer to use Microsoft Speech Services!  Not what I was expecting.
