Swapping Ctrl-Fn Keys on keyboard

2018-03-17, 16:52 PM

I've searched the boards and found out how to do this, and one says to go into the BIOS (tried that, but there's no keyboard/input selection in the BIOS) and the only other option is to go into the Lenovo Vantage app in the laptop, but that doesn't have the "Swap Control/Fn Key" ability, either...only toggling the Function Keys at the top of the keyboard.   Anyone successfuly swapped the Ctrl and Fn Key????

So, you just want the Ctrl button to become the Fn button and vice versa. You aren't trying to change what happens with the top row F-keys. Is that correct?

 

You might look into the Yoga 910 threads where users were swapping the oddly-placed right-shift key with the right-arrow key. I'd imagine the procedure would be similar for this.. but note that those solutions all require 3rd-party keyboard remapping software such as Sharpkeys.

It's not impossible but you will have to modify BIOS and considering that is quite dangerous if you don't know what you're doing, you may end-up breaking the mainboard. Still, I suggest to check the download page for the latest BIOS update. Maybe there's an update for BIOS to enable the switch buttons

I'm not sure if you're going to try but this was an issue before with some IdeaPad and ThinkPad systems. You can search the forum for details
