Function keys (fn + f9 of f10) not working to dim or brighten screen on a Stout-issued (eStout) HP student laptop

Function keys not working to dim or brighten screen on HP laptops deployed in the fall of 2016


The function keys (f9 and f10) on student laptops deployed in the fall of 2016 are known not to work to adjust the brighten or dim the screen. A suggested resolution is to update the HP Hotkey Support driver. An alternative is to adjust screen brightness using the following technique:

  1. Right-click anywhere on the Windows desktop and select "Display settings"

    right click on desktop

  2. Adjust the brightness using the slide and click "Apply"
    adjust brightness and apply
