  1. Windows 10 not functioning until Win key pressed


    Hi all.

    I have an HP Pavilion.

    When I turn on the computer, and periodically after, nothing works until I press the windows key.

    Then it is fine.

    Reloaded Windows, changed the hard drive, changed the RAM.

    I think it started after I updated the BIOS, but can't be sure that is related.

    Anyone?

    :)

  2. windows 10 key

    Thanks but I don't want to do any decrypting. I want to download a Win 10 ISO from Microsoft and install it using my Win 8 key. No other steps required. Is that possible?

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  4. Windows 10 not functioning until Win key pressed

    No effect upon pressing <fn> and a function key

    I have an ASUS laptop, K52JC, it used to perform certain function when combination of <fn> key and a function key are pressed simultaneously. For example -

    • Pressing <fn> and <F10> simultaneously will mute the sound
    • Pressing <fn> and <F11> simultaneously will decrease the volume
    • Pressing <fn> and <F12> simultaneously will increase the volume, and so forth

    I have its Windows 10 re-installed recently. Everything works fine after the installation, except when combination of <fn> key and a function key are pressed simultaneously, no effect seems to be generated, as the computer does not respond accordingly.

    Please advise how to resolve the above problem.
