Re:X1 Tablet - Swap CTRL and FN Keys

2021-02-26, 9:34 AM


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:


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 :)
