    HP Quick Launch for Windows 8?


    I have an HP Envy 4t Ultrabook, and for Windows 7, I could install the Quick Launch software update to get functionality of the Wireless button, and other function keys. I see on HP's site they offer it for Windows 7, but not for Windows 8...for my Ultrabook. Before I try to install the software, I'm wondering if anyone has other versions compatible with Windows 8?

    Hmm.. I have a hp desktop and laptop (envy)

    Never heard of this. Seems interesting. Although desktop has no fn key.

    I'm guessing this is mostly for note, and ultrabooks?

    Let us know if it works, seem like a cool toy

    I ended up installing the Quick Launch drivers listed for Windows 7 to try, and it seems to be working fine for now.
