Do you swap Fn and Ctrl keys?

2020-10-19, 9:47 AM

I got my first laptop (L590) and I like everything except the Fn and Ctrl placement. I always used logitech's mechanical keyboards with big ctrl at the left corner at the keyboard. I tried swapping it, but it still feels awkward because Fn is smaller (and labels are wrong). I can't really decide what is better/worse. What do you have?

Welcome to the forum.

 

Are you aware that you can swap the operation of the Fn and Ctrl keys?
