You're going to have to ask the manufacturer of your laptop, this isn't a Windows issue it is the hot key utility supplied by your laptop manufacturer.

Not any 3rd party applications available to change these?

Is that a threat? Or a poor attempt at humor? Either way, I suggest you take another look at the forum rules I linked you to before. You seem to have difficulty participating here, without bringing staff attention to yourself.

There are 3rd party programs which will do what you want. I used to use one for my laptop but it has been a long time since I used it and forgot the name of it.

You need a keyboard re-mapping program.

Google keyboard remapping for windows 8.

You will be able to find free ones, although you might have to try a few before you find one that works for you.

Even though the member has been banned and the topic closed I will have the last word:

I am not a man. Last time I checked I was still a woman.
