X1 Tablet - Swap CTRL and FN Keys

2017-08-13, 20:22 PM

Is there a way to swap teh CTRL and FN keys on the X1 Tablet (2nd Gen)?  I find it maddening that the FN key is where the CTRL key should be.

 

TIA!

I also like to change the keyboard mapping. You can swap FN and Ctrl by Lenovo settings.
1) Windows menu -> Lenovo settings
2) Select Input -> FN/Ctrl setting

 

As far as I know, this setting is workable for the tablet. My laptop has the setting in BIOS menu.

Is there any way to do this in the BIOS or without the Windows software? I am not running Windows on my X1 tablet.

Lenovo Settings seems to have been replaced by Lenovo Vantage, which doesn't have this selection under Input :(  Any other methods on the tablets??

I also have the same problem. I was able to do the swap using lenovo settings, but I reinstalled windows 10 on my laptop and now lenovo settings is gone -- I can't find the swap option in lenovo vantage. Anyone knows how to do the swap in this condition?

Hi, I've found the keyboard-manager under system controls where I can swop the FN and Strg-Keys in the 4. register.

I don't know what are you guys thinking but the bios of X1 tablet does not have an option for swapping fn and control. And the Lenovo Keyboard Manager does not work even you toggle the switch on in there. Please for the love of god someone fix this or tell me how to do this? Not of the single response here helps.

Exactly the same here.

 

I just bought a used Thinkpad X1 Tablet. Nice thing but:

 

No setting in BIOS to swap Fn and Ctrl

 

I have an option in the "Lenovo - Keybordmanager" but this setting is not saved.

Same with the Lenovo Vantage. There is a hidden setting but it has no effect and is not saved.

 

Lenovo, please fix this!

Thx
