Description of hpwmisvc.exe from Hewlett-Packard Development Company L.P.
Some HP notebook PCs come with Quick Launch buttons. Quick Launch buttons enable you to quickly access the programs that you use most frequently. For example, if you frequently travel for your job to give presentations, you could program the Presentation button to always open a presentation that you frequently use—all you have to do is press the button and the presentation opens. To determine if your notebook has HP Quick Launch buttons, look above the F1-F12 function keys on your keyboard for the HP Info button icon and for the Presentation button icon. If you have these icons, you have HP Quick Launch buttons.
