HP ENVY 15t-k000 CTO Notebook PC (ENERGY STAR)

One of my biggest complaints about this laptop is that pressing a function key (F1-F12) by itself accomplishes what the picture on it is. As a result, if I wanted to use a function key to do something like open the “save as” dialog box in Microsoft Office programs, I would have to press the “fn” and “F12” keys simultaneously, instead of just “F12.” While I am aware there are ways around it (adding commands to the “quick access” toolbar, pressing “ctrl” + “s,” etc.), it would be nice if I could just press “F12.” I have excellent use of my left hand, my right hand does not work as well, so using two hands can be tricky. Is there a way to reprogram the “F1” through “F12” keys?

Hi,

 

You can change the default behaviour as follows.

 

Shut down the notebook.  Tap away at the esc key as you start the notebook to enter the Start-up Menu.  Select the Bios option ( f10 ), then make the change shown in the document on the following link.

David,

 

Thanks! Although I rarely use Sticky Keys, it would be GREAT if it worked with the “fn” key.
