New HP laptop has a high gloss screen and is great except the reflections especially outside, is a way to elimate or reduce the reflections?

JOKE ALERT!

Rub it down with fine grit sandpaper.

/JOKE

Some idiot out there would actually do it...

Seriously, I've never seen a product that reduces it. I've used boxes and monitor "shields" to create a tunnel for the screen. That helps. Other than that, figure out an angle.

It's the biggest downside of glossy screens, imo.

This might help

3M anti-glare, anti-static and anti-radiation filters relieve eyestrain.
