in case it's not too late, on a laptop, the use of a missing application
key is usually achieved by pressing shift+f10.

Just guessing here, but there may not be an application key at all. I
just bought a laptop that doesn't have one and it's going back to the
seller.

As for the function keys, they may be set to perform hardware
functions rather than the application specific functions you would
expect. I'm not sure how you would change that on an HP laptop. But
you can get the app specific function by holding down the FN key while
pressing the function keys.

I hope this helps.

Good morning all,
I recently bought a new HP Laptop. I am having a couple of problems but I
think it is me not the computer. Some of my shortcut keys are not working
such as Insert F7 for links, or F7 for Spell Check. I cannot seem to find
the application key where in the past it has always been two keys to the
right of the space bar. I have my keyboard set to laptop. I have had no luck
trying to search these issues online. Any help would be greatly
appreciated!

Kind Regards,

I do have an HP laptop. When I got it in 2013, I had the same issue. I had sighted assistance and we did have to goin to the Bios to get my applications key to work as well as the function keys in general.
It worked, but at that time I could not do it myself,.
I'll probably get the 40 cell El-Braille soon and will not get another Laptop.
At least, that's the plan for now.

My HP envy doesn't have this issue. From what I recall, I didn't have to go into the bios to change anything either when I first got it.

And the Shift F10 combo on an HP sometimes requires the FN key as well ans sometimes not. That's probably my biggest issue with my HP laptop at home is sometimes the FN key is required and sometimes not. I often accidentally turn on airplane mode when trying to use JAWS F12 to check the time. I really do need to go get the bios changed.

Actually, there are cases where laptops will allow you to do a few f keys without using the function key.  Particularly, alt+f4 is sometimes allowed, but, not others.

 

Usually, you will need to have help going into the system’s bios menus to change the behavior, and this is usually not accessible.

 

I knew of one laptop where you could actually go into Windows mobility center and change this under Windows, but, I have never seen it like this since.

For starters you eather need to have someone go into the bios and change the defalt of the function keys.  They now are set for hp device operations, and you need to change it to just f keys.

 

If you do not do this then you would have to press the function key and along with your jaws key and f 7 to have the jaws action take place. And this would be for all f key operations.

It must depend on the specific model because I have two very new HP
laptops and neither had this issue.
