The "Function" or "FN" key on the HP DV6000 allows laptop users to create customisable shortcut keys to perform actions on their laptop keyboards. The "Function" key can be used to quickly execute many tasks, including to adjust a computer's brightness, toggle the display mode and turn off the display. Using the function key is simple. Regardless of the computer you use, the "Function" key operates similarly.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Locate the "Function" key. You can find it at the bottom left of your keyboard. The letters "FN" appear on the key.

  2. 2

    Press and hold the "Function" key.

  3. 3

    Press and hold the key associated with the designated function you want to perform. For example, press the "left arrow" button to decrease the display brightness, the "right arrow" to increase the display brightness and the "F1" key to open the system start-up program.

  4. 4

    Release both keys.
