Use "HP Quick Lanch Buttons"

This may help if you own a HP laptop, if you do not have one, you can skip it.


I have seen this small rocket for almost 2 years, but I learnt to use it only few days ago.


One function I like is "ZOOM". When you use 1680 * 1050 screen resolution, you may want to use large font. Here is the quicker way than change screen properties. I change this frequently because I am using dual monitors.


Another function I like is the quick buttons. There is button, a circle around a question mark, on the left top of your laptop keybord. Press the button, you get the button menus. Right click on the small rocket, you can "Adjust HP Quick Lanch Buttons Properties".
