Replacing Fn and Ctrl on keyboard

Is it possible to actually replace the Fn and Ctrl keys on a P51 keyboard, ie not just remapp them? Looking at the keyboard, it seems like it could be a challenge but doesn't hurt to ask Smiley Happy

Wrong answer, keyword here being "replace", not "remap" Smiley Very Happy

Re: Replacing Fn and Ctrl on keyboard

The keys seem to have different sizes, so I guess replacing them won't be possible without some physical modification. In my opinion the easiest would be to remap them in the BIOS and buy stickers to "rename" them.

I don't think so, but there are plenty of stickers available in eBay, Amazon and alike, for small amounts of money ;-)

Re: Replacing Fn and Ctrl on keyboard

And where might such stickers be found? Could you post a direct link, because my searches on Amazon and eBay have been fruitless so far.

Another (lame) workaround is to swap the Fn key with the right Ctrl key. Then on the bototm row you have Ctrl, Ctrl, Win/Super, Alt, Space, Alt, PrtSc, Fn. I never use the right Ctrl key anyway.
