Omen programmable keys

HP Recommended
Omen
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-Bit)
 
The programmable keys on the keyboard (ex. P1, P2, P3) are no longer working correctly (they used to work fine). I have not done any updates recently to cause a problem.
 
Now each key enacts the command on its right (eg P2 is `, P4 is caps lock). Would appreciate any help with this issue.

Thanks Praveen.

 

I have two problems now:

1. The link in your post doesn't work.

2. Trying to fix the problem myself, I tried to reinstall the HP command center. I uninstalled it successfully, but can't reinstall it. The link to SP71716.exe on the hp site doesn't work: https://support.hp.com/gb-en/document/c04778446

Thanks Praveen

I have successfully installed the Gaming Hub. When I launch it I get the message:

 

"Your OMEN PC is not supported in this version of OMEN Gaming Hub. The functionality available will be limited to OMEN accessories."

 

This sounds OK as I only want to  use the P1-P6 keys. But the Gaming Hub doesn't seem to let me edit them. The Gaming Hub Homescreen has menu items My Games and Gallery, nothing else.

 

BTW my OMEN is the 15-5000na model.

Thanks

Phil

@PJH5,

 

You can configure the macro keys (P1-P6) on the OMEN computer to initiate a series of recorded key presses using a single keystroke.

 

I'd like to help.

 

Let's create a Macro for HOME using the HP OMEN Command Center

  1. Select the key set to choose which key press or combination of key presses initiates the macro.

    Figure : Creating a macro

  2. Creating a macro
    1. Select the key set

    2. Select the key

  3. Choose a key for the new macro, then click Create new.

    The Create Macro screen opens.

    Figure : Creating a macro

    Creating a macro
  4. Name the macro ( Ex: Home ).

  5. Select a delay option.

    • Recorded delay: The time between keypresses is recorded and applied when the macro is initiated.

    • Fixed delay: Assign a uniform delay between each keypress in the macro.

    • No delay: All keys in the macro are activated at the same time.

  6. Click Record to begin programming the macro.

  7. Press each key in the desired macro sequence ( The Regular Key combination to make use of the Home ).

  8. Click Stop to finish the macro.

  9. Edit any keypresses or delays that require change.

    Figure : Editing a macro

    Editing a macro
  10. Click Save to finalize the macro.

Next, Determine which macro key will initiate a macro.

  1. Select the key set to choose which key press or combination of key presses initiates the macro.

    Figure : Assigning a macro

  2. Assigning  a macro

    1. Select the key set

    2. Select the key

  3. Click the menu next to the desired key.

  4. Choose the desired macro from the list.
