I ran a scan for driver updates through the Lenovo site and was prompted to install a critical BIOS update (BIOS Update-10 version 4GCN35WW). During the installation process there was a warning that the update was only for the ideapad and some other model not the Legion. Naturally, I cancelled the install.
I just wanted to confirm that this update is NOT for the Legion y720, correct?
Its confusing because I did the search for updates based on my laptop model and serial number, but got the conflicting information from the installation setup for the update itself.
How can I activate the FN+Space keyboard shortcut for the keyboard backlights for when I'm NOT signed in as the administrator?
I do the vast majority of my work from a personal (non-admin) windows profile, using the admin account only for updates and system wide settings changes. The Nerve Center app works just fine in both accounts, and the FN+Space shortcut DOES work when I'm signed in to the admin account. The shorcut does not work when I'm signed in to my every-day user profile. Its a minor inconvenience, but an inconvenience nonetheless.
I have read the other posts about the keyboard backlight issues, and I have tried installing the recommended drivers. It fixes the problem until I sign out and back in. Even just as a result of sleep mode or closing the lid. Any other ideas?
Thanks in advance

I did BIOS update on my Y720 and every thing runs fine , The only thing that happen is I had to configure BIOS setting again for my SSD. I don't know what update changed maybe Lenovo tech can read this and let me know.

The BIOS version for the Y720-15IKB with MTM 80VR can be found on the following linked to page, the only fix noted is for the Spectre & Meltdown vulnerability. Please don't concern yourself that during the update process Legion might not be mentioned.
