Bluetooth Keyboard with Trackpoint windows 10 fn lock problem

Hi, I have a bluetooth compact keyboard with trackpoint working with my surface pro 3.

In older systems, I can use Fn+Esc to switch between using Fn or keys like volume up.

Now with the lastest windows 10, it does not work anymore.

In control panel - mouse - keyboard, there is also no option to switch this, even though that the drivers for the keyboard from Lenovo website has been installed.

 

How can I changes these keys to Fn? I need to use F2, F5 very often.

Thanks.

Hi.

 

I have a "Bluetooth Keyboard with Trackpoint" at home and I think that Fn+Esc used to work fine. I will check it tonight and home and let you know.

 

Check also the "Keyboard" option on "Control Panel" for the moment to see if it is something that can help you.

Re: Bluetooth Keyboard with Trackpoint windows 10 fn lock problem

Hi again.

 

Just to correct myself on a few things.

 

1) Fn+Esc works on the keyboard, but on a Thinkpad machine.

2) The "Control Panel - Keyboard - Fn and Fuction Keys" does not work. It work for the laptop keyboard, but not for the "Bluetooth Keyboard with Trackpoint".

3) There is no configuration about the Fn keys on the "Control Panel - Keyboard - External Keyboard" settings.

 

So, I'm locked up with your issue.

Re: Bluetooth Keyboard with Trackpoint windows 10 fn lock problem

That's not the case for me. I use the (wired) keyboard on a Windows 10 machine.

As stated here, if I press FN + ESC, I am prompted whether I would like to lock the FN keys.

 

However, I manually installed this driver beforehand so I am not sure if that in the end installed that little gimmick program.

Best,
