Disable HP EliteBook Laptop Keyboard HotKey Popups

Source:  HP Tech. Support

Basically HP is providing some registry keys to preferably enable/disable pop-ups that appear when Caps-Lock, Num-Lock, volume or brightness control buttons are pressed. The pop-ups are very annoying, takes longer than multiple seconds to disappear and appears on top of all other windows.

So, if you are alike me and want to stop the pop-ups from appearing forever, just download/save the following registry file and import into your registry (Saving the text below into a *.reg file and double-clicking should do the trick in case you haven't ever done it before).

I just realized, the registry trick doesn't work if you have an older version of  "HP Hotkey Support" module installed. According to the source page, the latest version can be downloaded from here:

Hi, do you have this sp57879.exe installer file? The hp's ftp link is dead, and I cannot find elsewhere.

I tried this hotkey driver, and the registry trick is working after restart:

version: REV: A
