HP Omen Laptop and command centre Pause macro

HP Recommended
Hp Omen 17
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Is there any way to set up a macro for the pause key ( FN + Shift)  on HP OMen latop using Omen Command Centre?


I have tried several times setting the macro just as FN  Shift  and the macro accetps it as Pause but it does not work in games. I have checked the macro buttons with other macros and they work fine.


Its just a PITA to have to use both hands to pause games.

Thank you for posting on HP Support Community.


Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:  

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

  • NOTE: The macro feature is only available on OMEN computers with dedicated macro keys.

Record a series of keystrokes to be initiated using a macro key.

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

    1. Select the key set

    2. Select the key

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

    The Create Macro screen opens.

    Creating a macro

  3. Name the macro.

  4. 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.

  5. Click Record to begin programing the macro.

  6. Press each key in the desired macro sequence.

  7. Click Stop to finish the macro.

  8. Edit any keypresses or delays that require change.

  9. Click Save to finalize the macro.
