Ctrl-Break

HP Recommended

MS Access uses Ctrl-Break to stop the formatting on long reports.  Where can I find the break key on the dv7-6b75nr laptop computer?

My knowledge is not so good on these products. If I remember correctly, there is no Pause/Break single key on this DV7-6 series product. These are two different functional keys.

 

To my knowledge, Pause is a combination with right SHIFT key and Break is a combination with ESC key. To use the pause key, it is the combination of Fn & right SHIFT key.

 

I have not tested but to use Pause/Break key, customer should be pressing CTRL+ALT+ESC+Fn+Right SHIFT keys.

 

Instead you can use On Screen Keyboard (osk.exe).

 

You can simplify your needs using third party utilities like the following:

I tried all your suggestions and none of them worked.  It is true that pause is located on the right shift key, but break is on no key.

 

I tried SharpKeys as that sounded ike the best idea and discovered there is no break listed.  Furthermore, there is no way to add two keys together as in Ctrl-Break.

 

Any other ideas?

Hi, I have no Pause/Break on my HP Zbook too.

I found out the following link which helped to me:

 

https://support.hp.com/nz-en/document/c05314495

 

The "Break" key is missing from the keyboard layout. The "Break" and "Pause" keys normally shared the same button on older keyboard layouts.
The "Pause" key is now shared with the right "Shift" key
 
The following legacy keys have been removed from the new keyboard layout.
  • Break
  • Sys Rq
  • Scroll Lock
  • Pause

RESOLUTION:

 

To resolve this issue, perform the following key strokes to get the correct key functionality. Additional key stroke commands have been added to support the "missing" key functions.
  • Fn+R = Break
  • Fn+S = Sys Rq
  • Fn+C = Scroll Lock
  • Fn+P = Pause

I hope it will help to you. V.
