Carbon X1 Adaptive Keyboard - Default Setting

2014-04-05, 18:22 PM

Hi,

Where would one look in the registry to change the default adaptive keyboard setting?

 

What I am trying to achieve is the following:

- Enable F keys as default setting

- Disable application switching of toolbar

 

We will need to do this on a large number of laptops, and it's not really viable to do it via the aplication (as it will be time consuming). I hope to deploy the settings as a batch file which imports a registry entry.

 

Thanks for any help!

Solved! See the solution

Hi Liveman,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

 

I’m sorry to hear that you are facing the issue with Adaptive Keyboard on ThinkPad X1 carbon.

 

To keep the keyboard showing Function row at all times:

 

  • Press the gear icon to load the Adaptive Keyboard Settings app
  • Change the default row to be "Function" - check the box under the default column
  • Turn off "Dynamic Mode" - flip the switch to off on the right-hand panel

In this configuration you can press Fn to cycle through the rows but it will always default to Function row whenever you switch to another app.

 

Hope this helps! 

 

Best regards,

Hemanth Kumar

The Adaptive Keyboard has a deployment guide that has information on everything you are trying to do:

Perfect!

 

The checkbox wasnt visible on my machine, but clicking in the same spot as the default one had the checkmark, did the trick :p

The check box isnt visible on my design either, and there is no way to check/uncheck it. Is there a way to change the default to "Function" through the registry and how in that case? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Lisaen,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

 

I am sorry for the situation what you are facing on your ThinkPad X1 Carbon system. To resolve the issue here I am providing you the link where you can watch the video on how to configure the Adaptive Keyboard settings.

 

Please check if the system is having ThinkVantage system update utility, this application is use to check all the required drivers and application for the system.

(apologies for cross post but its pertinent to each of these threads.)  

 

Guys,I just posted a new thread on how I resolved my Adaptive Keyboard issues.  At first I was just going to reply to each of these "Bad Adaptive Keyboard" threads, but there are a ton of threads. I thought it would be more helpful to just start a new post and reply with a simple link to my indepth explorations.

 

Ultimately I found 2 ways (1) Buy the $80 Thinkpad KT-1255 keyboard, OR (2) install a hotkey script: SOLVED-How-I-resolved-my-X1-2014-frustrations
