Chapter 5 HP Create Control Panel software
NOTE: If you are working with a commonly used application such as Adobe Photoshop® or Illustrator®, your
tablet's software will identify the application and set the HP Quick Keys to commonly used functions for that
application. Default settings will take effect automatically only if you have not entered your own HP Quick Key
settings for that application.
NOTE:
If two programs have the same executable file name, they will share the same customized settings.
Integrated applications
Some software applications may directly control HP Quick Key settings, which may cause them to perform
differently than the function set in HP Create Control Panel software.
●
When an HP Quick Key setting is overridden by an application, the HP Quick Key automatically updates,
using either Application Defined or the new function name. Some or all of the HP Quick Keys may be
overridden, depending on the application.

Applications that have been integrated typically allow you to disable this functionality when first using
your tablet with the application. Refer to your application documentation for specific instructions on
how to customize or disable this feature. If that information is not available, use the HP Create Control
Panel software to create application-specific settings that will override the behavior of the integrated
application.

Chapter 8 Security
Using antivirus software
When you use the computer to access e-mail, a network, or the Internet, you potentially expose it to
computer viruses. Computer viruses can disable the operating system, programs, or utilities, or cause them to
function abnormally.
Antivirus software can detect most viruses, destroy them, and, in most cases, repair any damage they have
caused. To provide ongoing protection against newly discovered viruses, antivirus software must be kept up
to date.
Windows Defender is preinstalled on your computer. It is strongly recommended that you continue to use an
antivirus program in order to fully protect your computer.
For more information about computer viruses, access the HP Support Assistant.
Using firewall software
Firewalls are designed to prevent unauthorized access to a system or network. A firewall can be a software
program you install on your computer and/or network, or it can be a solution made up of both hardware and
software.
There are two types of firewalls to consider:
●
Host-based firewalls—Software that protects only the computer it is installed on.
●
Network-based firewalls—Installed between your DSL or cable modem and your home network to
protect all the computers on the network.
When a firewall is installed on a system, all data sent to and from the system is monitored and compared with
a set of user-defined security criteria. Any data that does not meet those criteria is blocked.
Your computer or networking equipment may already have a firewall installed. If not, firewall software
solutions are available.
NOTE: Under some circumstances a firewall can block access to Internet games, interfere with printer or file
sharing on a network, or block authorized e-mail attachments. To temporarily resolve the problem, disable
the firewall, perform the task that you want to perform, and then reenable the firewall. To permanently
resolve the problem, reconfigure the firewall.
Installing software updates
HP, Windows, and third-party software installed on your computer should be regularly updated to correct
security problems and improve software performance.
IMPORTANT: Microsoft sends out alerts regarding Windows updates, which may include security updates.
To protect the computer from security breaches and computer viruses, install all updates from Microsoft as
soon as you receive an alert.
You can install these updates automatically.
To view or change the settings:
1.
Select the Start button, select Settings, and then select Update & Security.
2.

12 Using HP PC Hardware Diagnostics (UEFI)
HP PC Hardware Diagnostics is a Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) that allows you to run diagnostic
tests to determine whether the computer hardware is functioning properly. The tool runs outside the
operating system so that it can isolate hardware failures from issues that are caused by the operating system
or other software components.
When HP PC Hardware Diagnostics UEFI detects a failure that requires hardware replacement, a 24-digit
Failure ID code is generated. This ID code can then be provided to support to help determine how to correct
the problem.
To start HP PC Hardware Diagnostics (UEFI), follow these steps:
1.
Turn off the tablet. Press the power button, and then quickly press and hold the volume down button
until the Startup menu is displayed.

14 Electrostatic Discharge
Electrostatic discharge is the release of static electricity when two objects come into contact—for example,
the shock you receive when you walk across the carpet and touch a metal door knob.
A discharge of static electricity from fingers or other electrostatic conductors may damage electronic
components.
To prevent damage to the computer, damage to a drive, or loss of information, observe these precautions:
76
●
If removal or installation instructions direct you to unplug the computer, first be sure that it is properly
grounded.
●
Keep components in their electrostatic-safe containers until you are ready to install them.
●
Avoid touching pins, leads, and circuitry. Handle electronic components as little as possible.
●
Use nonmagnetic tools.
●
Before handling components, discharge static electricity by touching an unpainted metal surface.
●
If you remove a component, place it in an electrostatic-safe container.
