Where's the shortcut Alt + F4


I just started my new HP dv7 and was quite sad to see that I can no longer close windows using the combo "ALT + F4".

Is there anyway that I can integrate it maybe once more, or is it gone for good, or is it replaced by another combination?

* Sorry if this has already been answered, I tried to find it but couldn't.


I just thought of it myself. I'm guessing it's the f4 function exactly it then the fn key is to press F4 work. Add to the mix and you get, as said Vanshaj Daga;

ALT + fn + f4

and it should work.

  • How the shortcut Alt + Backspace works? (dumb question)


    Sometimes I read a tutorial and they say I should use the shortcut Alt + Backspace to fill the selection with the foreground color.

    But every time I try on a selection, a drop down menu appears floating (options: restore, move, size, minimize...)

    It's silly, but I would like to know how to use it properly.

    Thank you

    BACKSPACE and space bar are not the same thing.

    BACKSPACE is your key to delete allows you to delete the characters that you have typed.

    Yes, it is possible to do both.

    The answer to this question lies here in this HP web document. You can reassign the key combination to another combination and it free for use in a program who need.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that you meant CTRL + ALT + S and not ALT + S

  • shortcut ALT for German umlaut, alt - o doesn't do not "o" "o".

    Is it possible to define the shortcut alt - u, so it only produces the Scandinavian German umlauts instead of special characters?

    ALT - o is an "o" not "o" on my keyboard.

    ALT - a is only an 'a' not 'a' on my keyboard.

    ALT - u works very well to make "u".

    Thank you

    With the UK English keyboard is alt - u followed by o (or one).

  • BlackBerry Smartphones, please allow us to change the shortcuts!

    I have the BlackBerry Bold 9700 (which I love), however, I have a small complaint, the shortcut alt + del on SMS. If you press on these you lose any of your text.

    Now, I often write messages that are more than two or three long texts, for then all text deleted because I accidentally press the wrong buttons is very annoying!

    We would not be able to change the shortcuts, or be able to remove?

    After all, a shortcut is supposed to be useful to the user, NOT frustrating.

Therefore, it is unlikely they will see what you wrote. However, if you have specific and constructive ideas for them, I heard they accept this by e-mail to [email protected]

  • Keyboard combinations to open the shortcuts with CTRL + ALT + < letter or digit >

    I like and use this function all day at work, as it works very well with my workflow.  However, the downside for me is that my office is too cluttered with shortcuts to programs and files that I never need to see because I will only use the keyboard combo to open.  Yet, if I put one of the shortcuts within a folder on the desktop, the combo keyboard no longer works...

    At home I use fences and shortcuts still work and I really like it.  Unfortunately, the fences is not supported by our IT Department and therefore cannot install it.  I need windows built in functionality.

    Is there somewhere I can store all my shortcuts so that I should not watch all of them on my desktop but the keyboard shortcut (ctrl + alt +) will still work? Or any other feature where I can get the same result to a blank desktop but use the keyboard to open the files/programs?

    Thank you!
