if you are refering to the blue letters or alphabets which are present on the keyboard. HP designs keyboard with a billingual layout in some Notebook models.
The HP "Blue" keys are indeed the "French" input keys or other language keys.
How to use the Blue Symbols or keys on a HP Notebook:
We can activate them by pressing Ctrl+fn+right Shift.To deactivate, press Ctrl+fn+right Shift twice, i.e. Ctrl+fn+right Shift then let go off Shift while still holding Ctrl and fn, then press Shift again.
When you press Ctrl+Fn+Right Shift it will switch to the the billigual layout. That means the blue characters become prioritie.
For example, if you are in the billingual layout, when you press shift+6 you will get a '?' but not the '^' sign.
