Fn keys not working while gaming\ how to enable fn keys in game (full screen mode)

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, question regarding fn keys- while using laptop for surfing etc fn keys work correctly(not fullscreen mode), however when i m playing games and i am interested in changing volume(fullscreen mode)- nothing happens. How can i enable fn keys to work while gaming and so it would be possible to adjust volume?

There must be some kind of trick to enable fn keys while gaming, i do not think it is a bug?

Thanks in advance...

@Mrhelpneed92 Welcome to HP Community!


I understand that the fn keys not working.


Please perform the below steps and check.


Steps to drain the Static charge and loading default BIOS settings to resolve the issue

Step 01. Turn OFF the Notebook

Step 02. Un-plug the Power/AC Adapter and also remove the Battery too

Step 03. Press and Hold the Power Button of the Notebook for a full minute

Step 04. Now let's re-insert the battery back in and plug back the Power/AC Adapter

Step 05. Start the Notebook and keep tapping F10 Key during the startup to access the BIOS

Step 06. Once you get to the BIOS, Please press F5 Key to load setup defaults for the BIOS

Step 07. Now let's press Esc/Escape Key. Save Changes and Exit - Yes

Step 08. Now please wait till the Unit loads the Windows Operating system

Now check if the function keys are working normal if not we can try and re-install the Quick launch drivers for your Notebook.
