User defined key no hotkey option anymore

Hi,

 

I recently had to update Lenovo Vantage and a few PC updates in the vantage app as well. Since then, there's no option to use the user-defined key (on the F12 key) as a hotkey anymore. Before I had it set up to CTRL + ALT + G which was linked to an app in the start menu. Now I only have the option to open a website or to enter text. Is there a solution to this? Thanks

Solution :

 

In control panel, choose "all control panel items" (view by: small icons), then click on "Lenovo - Keyboard Manager".

 

There are all the options that were in Lenovo Vantage before:  user-defined key, FN/shortcut keys swap and other options and FN/CTRL keys swap.

Re: User defined key no hotkey option anymore

Thanks! This helped me, too. I've been trying to find this out for at least six months.

What I do not understand is why Lenovo hid the functionality from their "all-in-one" Vantage program.

I was pleased to discover that I can ALSO actually launch four different programs from the user-defined key, using Ctrl, Alt & Shift.

Now I just need to find out how I can redefine F1-F4 special functions (audio control) since those keys are all duplicated on my keyboard above the numeric keypad...

And, of course, it would be nice to redefine a few other keys, too...
