F1 is, in some instances, the Help key. Did you mean you pressed the F11 key, which in the browser, goes Full-Screen and hides the menu bars? If so, pressing F11 again, pressing the Esc key, or moving the mouse to the top of the display, might e-size the browser display. Pressing Alt/Spacebar opens a menu to the top left of the display too.

When i play my game i cant see the whole screen how do i fix it?


If you are playing pogo games ?

Pogo.com is an online gaming website where you can play well-known games such as Monopoly, Battleship and Scrabble -- along with scores of other board, word, puzzle and arcade games -- in a Web browser window. The games on Pogo are programmed using Adobe Flash, and are viewed in a small box inside the browser. If your computer has a large display, you may find the games difficult to see because of the of the game box. Although you cannot independently adjust the of the Pogo game box, there are several tricks that you can use to make games appear larger on your screen. Magnify the browser window. In Internet Explorer 9, click the gear-shaped button in the upper-right corner of the screen, and click "Zoom" and "Zoom In." Browse in full screen mode. In Internet Explorer 9, press the "F11" key to enter this mode, and press "F11" again to leave it. Lower the screen resolution. In Windows 7, minimize the browser, right-click the desktop and select "Screen Resolution." Click the drop-down menu next to "Resolution," and select a lower resolution than the one currently displayed. Because a lower resolution uses less pixels to display the information on the screen, this has the effect of making the Pogo game box larger. Remember to change the resolution back when you are done playing. Disable the address and status bars in Internet Explorer 9 if a portion of the game window is cut off. Click the gear-shaped button, and then click "Internet Options." Click the "Security" tab, then click the "Custom Level" button. Click the "Enable" radio button next to "Allow websites to open windows without address or status bars," then click "OK" twice. Close and re-open your Pogo game window. Press the "F4" key. Some Pogo games enter full-screen mode when this key is pressed, but many do not. Hope this helps.

On my HP 3105m I have the FN/F1-12 keys of course.


This drove me batty as well!

When booting up the HP, press the F10 key to enter the BIOS.
There, scroll to 'System Configuration'
where you will see 'Action Keys Mode'
Change this from 'Enabled' to 'Disabled'

And the "normal" function of the F1-F12 key (and your sanity) will be restored!

I have a dell inspiron 1564. To use the f1-f12 functions require me to first hit the FN button. How do I reverse this so that i can use f1-f12 by hitting them directly and have the current commands...


You can change it so you don't have to use the FN key by going into the settings while you computer is booting.

Reboot your computer
Keep hitting F2 until a greay and blue settings screen comes up
Choose the Advanced menu
Use your arrow keys to go down and select 'Function Key Behavior'
Hit enter
Select 'Function Key First'
Hit enter
Choose to Save and Exit (usually F10)

Should fix it up.

I have Compaq Presario CQ42 118TU. The F1 to F12 keys are no longer the upper layer (used to be default). The HP quick launch buttons are now the default upper layer. Now i have to press the 'fn' key first...


I just had exactly the same issue. I found the answer on the HP website, but to save you looking for it, here's what you do:

1) Go to the BIOS for your machine. You'll do this by interrupting the startup sequence. On my Presario CQ42, I had to press ESC while the machine was starting.

2) Once in the BIOS, use the right/left arrow keys to move to the System Configuration tab.

3) Use the up/down arrow keys to move to the Action Key setting (Enable/Disable) and change it from the current setting.

4) Save and exit the BIOS.

Once your laptop finishes the boot-up, the F1-F12 keys should function the way you were used to.

Certain keys just won't respond and one of the keys (the h key) brings up a drawing box. The "h" key is not programmed to do that. The computer brings up a screen message overnight relating to a keyboard...


Pressing the '?' Menu soft key displays the soft key section of the HP enhanced keyboard control panel on your screen. Click any of the keys on the screen to display the action assigned to an individual key or to change or assign an action to a key. Shortcut keys are provided specifically for user-defined actions.
