I think maybe some of your keys are stuck together. have you spilt something on it or is there a load of debris underneath keys if so just give it a wipe to clean it or blow on the keys to remove debris

How i can enble function key


HP laptops have the ability to lock the blue special function keys on, making numerical data entry easier on laptop models that do not have the room for dedicated numerical keypads. Because the key combination to lock the function keys is so simple, however, it is easy for those who wouldn't normally use this ability to do so accidentally. When the function keys are locked, pressing certain keys will result in numbers being typed rather than letters. Unlock the function keys to alleviate this issue.

Press the "Fn" and "Num Lk" keys on the keyboard simultaneously. The "Number Lock" indicator light should turn off, indicating that the letter keys will once again type letters when pressed. This combination should work on the majority of recent HP laptops. If it does not, try one of the alternate key combinations in this article's remaining steps. Press the "Fn" and "F11" keys simultaneously, then attempt to type a letter. If the combination does not work, continue to the next step. Press the "Fn" and "Scroll Lock" keys simultaneously, then attempt to type a letter. Continue to the next step if this does not work. Press the "Fn," "Scroll Lock" and "F11" keys simultaneously.

I want to change what a key types e.g. the numeral 2 key has the @ sign but you need to use the ctrl key to get it. I want to use the shift key to get it.


Create a shortcut

Open the folder or directory that contains the program you wish to create a shortcut for.

Right-click on the program and click Create Shortcut.


This will create a shortcut named "Shortcut to <your program> in the directory you are in. If you wish to rename this shortcut, right-click the file and click rename.


Once the above steps have been completed, you can copy or cut this shortcut and paste it anywhere to execute this program.


Assign shortcut key to that Windows shortcut


Once the shortcut has been created to assign a shortcut key to that Windows shortcut follow the below steps.


Right-click the shortcut and click Properties.

Click the Shortcut tab.


Click in the Shortcut key box and press a letter. For example, if you press "p" the shortcut key will automatically be made Ctrl + Alt + P. Which means if saved when pressing Ctrland Alt and "P" all at the same time will run that shortcut.

Most programmes utilise keyboard shortcuts.
It says which key combinations will perform which command next to the options on the drop down menus when you click on file, edit, view, etc.
These shortcuts usually a letter key in combination with ctrl key, alt key , sometimes ctrl+shift.
Possibly you are pressing the ctrl key at same time when you press the shift key?
