Swap Fn and Ctrl Key on Wireless Thinkpad Keyboard II

2020-11-11, 10:07 AM

Hey there, I just got my Wireless Thinkpad Keyboard II and it's awesome!

 

But how do you swap the Fn and the Ctrl Key in the software? This is so frustrating and for me it's not possible using it with these two keys swapped out. I appreciate your help a lot!

Hello Darktrek,

 

This can be either swapper in the BIOS of your device or through the combination of keys ALT + ctrl + fn key.

I am not using a Lenovo Laptop, I am talking about the Thinkpad Keyboard II, so no option to change it in the BIOS and also the shortcut does not do anything.

Apparently this is not possible. See ThinkPad TrackPoint Keyboard II - Swap Fn and Ctrl?

 

The last post in that thread explains it, "the Fn key itself does not generate a scancode, but rather modifies the scancode of other keys on the keyboard."
