Modify FN keys function on Ideapad 320S

Hello,

I am an owner of a Lenovo Ideapad 320S. Unlike other models, this one does not include playback control in hotkey mode, i.e. none of the fn functions allow to control playback of Windows media player, Spotify or similars. I know that an Hotkey feature integration software by Lenovo exists, but my model is not supported (it's mostly for Thinkpads). Is there a way for me to change the function of the keys or some other workaround?

 

Best regards,

Francesco

Hi thedoctor1,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

The hotkeys provided with the model does have a BIOS built in functions that you can disable to use the function keys as normal keys for the audio applications :

BIOS can be accessed by turning off the machine and using the Novo key to power on (item1 page 8 users manual). Some would also use third party tool similar to this.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Not exactly. As the picture you posted shows, none of the fn keys allows for media playback control (play/pause/next/rewind), only for volume control. But yeah, I will try to use some kind of third party tool, thank you.
