    My brother-in-law has a 1-2 yr old HP laptop with Win 10 on it. I know little to nothing about them.
    (He dosent either!)

    The symbols on function keys are different than on my Toshiba laptop.

    Simple Q: Which key/ key combo to either turn off HP screen and turn on vga output to TV, or just turn on output to TV??

    The Toshiba symbol is pretty obvious.

    I wouldnt think they (HP) would have different symbols on different models, I dont know which model his is, , , , ,

    HP's website above has instructions for connecting to a tv with vga cable, scroll down page and it discusses function keys in this situation,

    When multiple displays are in use, press the fn and f4 function keys at the same time to switch the image from the notebook display, to the external monitor, or to both. This key combination might be different on your computer.
