Yoga 910 Function Lock: how to swap FN function keys to just press F1 without Fn+F1?

2020-01-20, 17:47 PM

Starting a new post on an old topic as most answers are years old and reference solutions that don't work anymore (e.g. editing , or using lenov settings software)

 

Question:

How do i lock the function keys?  I.e. if the key with F1 has the mute symbol on it, how do i get it  where i just need to push F1 to mute the laptop.  to put it the way another poster did, "how to swap FN function keys to just press F1 without Fn+F1?"

 

All the litterature says "My Device Settings" but all i see there are

- Battery

- Power

- Energy Star

- Other (all this has is the Lenov Vantage toolbar)

 

 

 

Solved! See the solution

Hi ,

 

Greetings!

 

Follow the steps in this article to disable Fn key. 

 

If the option is not available in BIOS, then we suggest installing the Lenovo Vantage enterprise to disable the FN function key.

 

1.  Save the following file to your PC:  Discovery_4.27.32.0.zip

2.  From the folder where you saved the file, right-click on Discovery_4.27.32.0.zip and choose "Extract All..."

3.  From the folder where you extracted the file in step 2, double-click on the APPXBUNDLE file (33880b99e2af47f89fd9c3419314052e.appxbundle)

4.  Follow the on-screen instructions to install the app.

 

Update us how it goes.

Auxen

Hi Auxen,

 

Thank you for your help.

 

If the option is in the BIOS, then it's not obvious to me where it is (also, various articles on this site suggest it has been removed from the bios)

 

I downloaded the file as suggested.   When I go to intstal it, it tells me there is already a new version intalled,  Should I launch and use the new version or reinstall with the old [the one i just downloaded]?

 

The new version, the version already on my machine, is the one where i was previously looking (and where the screenshots from my first post came from)

Thanks for getting back to us.

 

Try uninstalling the newer version of the Lenovo Vantage and install the old version.
