Brightness hotkeys not working after windows 10 update

HP Elitebook 850 G5
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello everyone,

 

I recently did an update of Windows 10 64bit. After the update, the brightness hotkey is not working. 

 

As I searched on this forum, I learned that other people had simulair problems with other notebooks. The solution that worked for them, didn't work for me. I updated my drivers, but the keys won't work. 

 

Does anyone have a tutorial for me that explains what I can do?

Hi:

 

If the graphics driver is properly installed, then see if installing the latest Hotkey driver resolves the problem.

Sir, I used this and thw brightess button worked but my entire hotkeys get changed. 
Alt+F4 not working , It doesn't close anything and

Ctrl+Shift+Esc  not showing Task Manager. 
Like that, It is more difficult than the brighteness problem. 
please help me to solve this issue, I can't even uninstall the previously installed driver.

please help me

Thanks, it works for me Function F8 (mic mute lamp) and F9/10 brightness well.

I do not know why HP does not update the device drive list for Windows 10 in the model of Elite 820 G2 repository.

HP EliteBook 810 G2. sp88033.exe
