Yoga 710 - How restore the Function Keys to default behaviour ?

Hi,

Just bought a Yoga 710 but its a lot of trouble to work because of the Function Keys not performing the usual tasks unless you press the Fn key.

Can this be corrected ?

 

The small right shift kety is also an annoyance.

 

Also do we have any keyboard shortcut for the right click ?

 

Thanks !!

Hi ab001atl , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

When hotkey mode is disabled, press the Fn key and the appropriate hotkey to access the corresponding hotkey function. (page5)

 

By default, the hotkey functions are accessible by pressing the appropriate hotkey. However, you can disable the hotkey mode in the BIOS setup utility. To disable the hotkey mode:

1 Shut down the computer.

2 Press the Novo button and then select BIOS Setup.

3 In the BIOS setup utility, open the Configuration menu, and change the setting of HotKey Mode from Enabled to Disabled.

4 Open the Exit menu, and select Exit Saving Changes.

 

Context menu provided with right click mouse have corresponding key on traditional keyboards in between the right alt and ctrl keys (may not be available for the yoga due to design) as shift +F10 . 

 

Else onscreen keyboard may help or simply use a key remapping software to assign the task of right click to another key such as this and this.

 

Update us how it would work for you. 

 

Regards

Hi 

 

Greetings.

 

A ballpen or tip of any blunt point tool would do nicely.

Turn off the machine and press the Novo button (item2 page 63)to turn it on would give you the Novo Menu . Choose BIOS setup to proceed. 

 

Update us how things go. 

 

Regards

Re: Yoga 710 - How restore the Function Keys to default behaviour ?

What was the reasoning behind disabled function keys as the default setting? I'm a software developer, so I know that really interferes with the normal use of the computer. I was confused by it; for people who are not power-users or are familiar with reconfiguring a computer on a regular basis, many would think the keyboard was broken and try to return the computer as defective. Was it just a manufacturing mistake?

Hi FudFighter,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

By default, hotkey settings are enabled in the BIOS.

Using specified combination FN keys set for each model, some users prefer to use F1-F12 as independent keys for their application so disabling it from the BIOS is needed.

 

Aside from manually disabling hotkeys, some update in BIOS may also do changes on its default configuration.

 

From the factory, Hotkeys / FN combinations are all active to provide the feature that the model offers as shown in each manual (here on page 29 for the yoga 710). 

 

Regards
