At the bottom of your screen where all the icons are visible you should see an icon that looks like a pyramid. When you pass your mouse over it 'show hidden icons' should appear. Click that icon then click 'customize' to set icon behaviors.

volume function key.

the manufacturers website, find their support section and there should be a
list of drivers for your specific machine. Installing these should resolve your
