Re:X1 Tablet - Swap CTRL and FN Keys

SOLUTION

Hi there, anyone affected by this problem, I have found a real fix.
Searching for an unrelated issue, I discovered this utility:

 

Think BIOS Configuration Tool, available here:

https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/software/think-bios-config-tool

It's a lightweight small official app that exposes all BIOS settings available to WMI.
It comes with instructions, has a simple GUI but includes ability to be run from command line and pass instructions that way also.

 



When you run it a log file is created in the program directory, like this:

 

I have tested the app and it works perfectly, both for the key swap and anything else you might want to change.

I will cross-post a fresh topic as the reach of this goes beyond the key swap and might be useful to others.


Enjoy :)
