Hi, I have a few T480's and unfortunately I don't have a backlit keyboard on any of them. I've purchased them from America but have not installed them, I want to get someone professional to do it so my 5yr warranty isn't voided. I work with FN lock switched on. Anyway, at least once a week while I'm working in the dark, when I'm switching my display output or adjusting brightness, or when I need to get to Windows Settings, I inadvertantly hit the airplane mode button. This has been really inconvenient especially during a large file download or during a conference call for example.
Is there a way to disable this button? I can't find any reference to it in Vantage or the BIOS. When Windows was first setting up, I remember seeing a 'driver' for airplane mode being installed, but I can't find any reference to that in Device Manager either. Any ideas? If this isn't possible then I would like to suggest this feature for a future BIOS update across all models please.

Welcome to the Community,
There's no such function in Vantage, neither in Windows Settings, to disable a specific function key. Seems that you're pressing F8 key, which will disable / enable built-in wireless features (Fn Lock Key Enabled). We've also checked and found that the BIOS also offers the same feature in disabling the standard function, enabling the secondary function, which can also be done by enabling Fn Lock. We appreciate you sharing your input regarding this matter. You may share it to us via the link below,
