Hi @clifos,

 

Thank you for showing your interest in HP Support Forums. It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts, and other support personnel. For you to have the best experience on the HP forum, you could also visit our HP Forums Guide for the First Time Here? Learn How to Post and More.

 

As I understand you would like to disable action keys on your HP Envy computer. Don't worry as I have a few suggestions which should help you resolve this concern,

 

To provide you with an accurate solution, I'll need a few more details:

What is the product number of this computer? (Ensure you do not share any of your personal information such as serial, phone number, email ID, etc...) http://hp.care/2bygf7l

Could you let me know why do you want to disable the action keys?

Could you elaborate more on this issue as this will help me in further assisting you?

 

To let you know, the Fn key can be disabled but then the brightness, volume control, etc... would be non-functional once disabled as function keys without the Fn are just used for normal functions like its listed here.

 

If you still wish to disable the Fn key features, here's the step by step guide for you:

 

1. Click the Start button, then click Run.

2. In the Run window, next to Open, type MSCONFIG.

3. Press the ENTER key.

4. In the System Configuration Utility window, click the Startup tab.

5. On the Startup tab, under Startup Item, ensure that the HKserv checkbox is unchecked.

 

NOTE: If HKserv is missing, reinstall the Hot-Key Utility application by clicking here For windows 10 drivers: Click here & then follow the above steps.

 

(ignore the ads, 3rd party link has been sent to ensure your issue is fixed, I'm going beyond my way to help you and if you would like to give me virtual high five, Click on the purple thumbs up 🙂 )

Let me know how that pans out, 

Feel free to post your query for any other assistance as well,

It's been a pleasure interacting with you and I hope you have a good day ahead.

If you wish to show appreciation for my efforts, mark my post as Accepted Solution.
