Lot has been written about this subject, and I have tried all suggestions.
When I first upgraded from Windows 7 to W10, all the Fn keys worked. Then i upgraded a few of the Lenovo W10 software upgrades, and now most Fn keys work, but not F5 and a couple of others. F2, F3, F4, F6, F7, Brightness up/down, and LED on/off all work. F5 does not, yet I can turn OFF Bluetooth in the W10 setting (and that works), but the Bluetooth light does not turn off. When I turn ON Bluetooth in the W10 settings, it finds my bluetooth speaker and I can play music thru it.
I have uninstalled most Lenovo drivers and other Lenovo software, and am looking for some suggestions on what to try.
Solved! Go to Solution.

After much messing around, I sort of have it working.
I restored the Program Files/Lenovo/Hotkey directory from an old W7 backup, which contains the TpFnT5.EXE file. The only way this directory can be restored, is to use the Drivers/Hotkey Setup.exe file to "UNINSTALL" the current installation, which deletes the whole Lenovo/Hotkey directory. After the restore, running the TpFnT5.EXE in the Program Files/Lenovo/Hotkey directory brings up the dialog box on which you can turn ON/OFF the Bluetooth, WiFi, and Airplane Mode.
The Fn+F5 key however still does not work. There must be some other way to link Fn+F5 to executing the TpFnT5.EXE file. But I don’t know how to do that.
I pinned the EXE file to the W10 Start Menu, which allows for easy access the Bluetooth and WiFi ON/OFF functionality.
Whatever you do, DO NOT run SETUP in the DRIVER/HOTKEY directory to "INSTALL". It replaces the content of the Lenovo/Hotkey directory, and breaks the above solution.

You can install the last windows 7 version of Hotkey Features Integration before win8 support was added. This will link up fn-f5 with the utility and all function keys will work in win10. You'll have to install the ThinkVantage Communications Utility for fn-f6 support.
Here are the links to the last version before win8 support was added:
If you already installed a later version be sure to uninstall it first.

Just need to uninstall a later version of Hotkey Features Integration first, before installing the win7 version. If you do have it installed, you will have a folder under c:\DRIVERS\WIN\HOTKEY. If that folder exists, just double click the setup.exe and select uninstall.
