Activate:

Ctrl + fn + right shift key

Deactivate:

Ctrl + fn + right shift key twice

so hold ctrl + fn + right shift key then release the right shift key but keep holding the ctrl + fn keys down then push the right shift key again and that should deactivate it

First hold down the ctrl on the left side, then also hold down the shift above on the left side and then holding both of these down I hit the shift on the right side and then let them all go at the same time. It worked for me. NB

    To get rid of the alternate keys

    ****This time I hit first the ctrl (on the left side) keep holding it then the shift above(keep holding it too) and then the shift on the right side and let them all go at the same time and it went away



    OR if that one doesn't work try the one below.....



    Hold down control, alt and fin and then hit the backwards erase key (the large one , 2nd row from top on right side) and you will have the normal keys again

My HP laptop was from Canada and this worked out to toggle between the normal keyboard and the blue keys. Press "Left shift" + "Left alt" together and double click "Right Shift".

    It should be to the left of the space bar in the same color as the keys you are trying to use.

There is a BLUE-coloured 'FN' key on the bottom-left of the keyboard. Hold that key down, and then press one of the "blue" keys, to get the "alternate" meaning of that key.

How to turn off blue keys for an Compaq mini cq10??


Hi,

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.

Sometimes the keys that have white and blue writing on them will only respond blue. How do i get them to respond as white instead of blue keys?


You have a FNC key on your keyboard. Since it is a laptop, your keyboard can not have all the keys that a normal keyboard has. This is handled by making some keys perform two or more functions. Thus, the alternate key use if the blue keys (function key is depressed). You will pribably find that there is a light labeled as FNC where you see your caps lock, num lock etc.. it sounds to me that you have your keyboard in alternate function mode so that the keys are performing the alternate functions (probably the numeric keys if it is a normal configuration..).
Thanks!

FUNCTION KEYS & OTHER RIGHT HAND SIDE KEYS


That means that you turned on the numlock on the laptop keyboard, On an acer if im not mistaken you have to press one of the function keys to deactivate it. Look for the icon with NUM on it and press it. if that does not work you may have to press FN then that icon.
