Can't change Function Key since Vantage update

2020-02-15, 5:17 AM

I have an Ideapad 520, Windows 10. Before, I used Lenovo Vantage to change the settings so that I can use F1, F2, etc without also pressing "Function." I use them all the time, so it's super annoying. However, I installed the latest BIOS update, and it went back to the old function settings. This time when I looked for the settings in Vantage, they're no where to be found. I also can't find a way to change it through Windows settings. Any ideas? Thanks in advance

Good day,

 

Try Function and ESC. On some Lenovo systems, it sets a function lock. Not sure if it will work on yours.

Alternatively, go into BIOS and disable Hotkey Mode.

 

Hope this helps

Thanks, I tried ESC FN but that didn't work. I'm not sure how to get into BIOS, can you help with that?

Good Day,


Turn off laptop

Turn on laptop

When you see the Lenovo Logo, press F2.

If your start up sequence is too fast and you cannot see the Lenovo Logo.

Press F2 multiple times after you turn on your laptop.


Hope this helps

Thanks for your help. I was able to change the Hot Key mode in BIOS. However, I had to use a different way to get there. Posting in case it helps someone else. The Lenovo logo stayed up for ages and I pressed F2 many times, but it didn't go to BIOS. I also tried with Fn+F2, but still didn't work. I found this article and was able to get there via their instructions for "Enter BIOS from Windows 10" https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht500216
