Re: Lenovo G500s FN key request

2013-09-25, 12:18 PM

I completely agree with you. It seems to be one of those "bright ideas" implemented by somebody who has never actually used a laptop. The really exasperating thing is, it would be so easy for Lenovo's engineers to fix. They could provide an option to disable this "function" or just offer a script to download and run. It's not a big deal for them, but it's a huge annoyance for anyone who wants to do work with this laptop.

P L E A S E!

PLEASE Lenovo, release a new version of the BIOS with a option to switch the Fn/F1-F12 keys.
 
It is very bad to use this keyboard out of standard.

I'll be waiting.
Thanks

Hi All,

 

We're aware of this feedback and I'm checking with the development team. Providing a hotkey swap as an option should be considered. 

 

I'll get back to you as soon as I get a response.

 

Thanks for your patience.


Regards,
Cleo

Because I am a programmer.

If I use F1 ~ F12 must hold down the Fn key is very difficult.

Please Lenovo add the Fn key swap function as soon as possible.
Please...Please...Please...

@up

I am a programmer as well. I can not normally debug applications (Visual studio requires heavily usage of F8-F11 keys)..

 

@Lenovo

Are you guys working on it? Any ETA of final patch / fix ?

All,

 

Yes - Cleo has been working this and a case was escalated on Oct 22.  It will take a bit of time to be reviewed by development and then hopefully, an update to be released.

 

Recently, we've provided an update in BIOS for many other systems.   I appreciate your patience - this may take several weeks.

 

Best regards,

 

Mark
