    That may be a special HP key combination which isn't recognized by Windows unless the associated software is installed.

    You may have to go to HP's site and download the image for that computer.

    I think you are seeing normal behavior.

    What function were you expecting Shift + F1 to perform.

    I am not aware of there being a 2 functions for F-keys. One using F-key and the other Shift + F-key.

    Looking at a few different keyboards here, none have 2 function. Just pressing F1 calls up Help. Shift + F1 does nothing here either.

    To use those keys you have to press the function key, fn, and the key. Don't use shift at all.

    According to this https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/ish_4429744-4429852-16
    My notebooks (they are not HP devices) don't have a help key so I can't test it.

    That's a good point. Just remember to try both ways - with and without the Shift key. Machines can be configured either way. If I recall correctly, it's a BIOS setting.
