Question

I have a Yoga 2 Pro and I am wondering if there is any way to activate the Fn lock key as sometimes I need the F1, F2 and F3 keys but I have to press the Fn button to be able to press these. It is not convenient for me.

Answer

There is a BIOS setting to invert the function keys.

 

To enter Boot Menu or BIOS on your Win 8/8.1 system, refer to this article.

 

For systems running Win 7 or prior, press F1 to enter Boot Menu (for ThinkPads), and F2 for IdeaPads.

With reference to the sample image taken off a Yoga 13's BIOS, check your Yoga 2 Pro's BIOS for an equivalent setting to the one highlighted.

Press F10 to save the changes and exit BIOS.

 

Load into Windows and you shall be able to use F1-F12 keys directly without pressing Fn key.

This doesn't answerr my question. The solution offered just switches the default mode of the FN key and its shirted counterparts. I need to shift + lock the fn key. I've had 4 different Thinkpads through thee years, they ll offered FN lock as an accessibility feature. I can't press the two keys simultaneously. Can you upgrade the BIOS so this functionality is restored?

The Function Lock is triggered on/off by pressing Esc + Fn.

Useless for Lenovo Yoga 910, there's no way to restore Function keys with current bios 2JCN39WW and Lenovo Settings v3.169.0.0

Won't buy / recomend Lenovo anymore. It's extremely important to use Function keys and to have all keyboards configured the same way. Shame on you Lenovo.
