I have a peculiar problem with this application. This function is fantastic and I loved it for about 4 days until it broke on my entirely new computer. The F12 function key is bound to start the HP Command center application and allow me to change the fan /cpu settings according to what I do.
From nowhere the function stopped working after just a few days of use (regular f12 works great when I press FN+12 so its not a mechanical problem). I tried starting the application without the function key and realized that it didnt save the settings i put in to it. Whatever I do it wont save the settings, and I believe its stuck in "Silent mode" leading to lower performance and lower fan speeds resulting in a very hot laptop.
I then deleted the application and redownloaded it from the only place its available; the microsoft store.
Right off the bat it loads extremely slow and when it starts up I only get three power options, not the 4 from previous and in accordance with the pictures shown in the microsoft shop. Again it doesn't save any settings I put in to it, and no fans rev up when placing it in performance mode like it used to.
When I go in to the app and look at system specifications it only says computer model, no other system information is viewable.
FIrstly: IS there any way I can fix this?
Secondly: Is there any way to restore the old version of windows I had when the computer was brand new a week ago?
