Ctrl and Fn key swap on X1 carbon gen. 6

Hello everyone,

 

I am considering purchasing a Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon generation 6 ( https://www.dustin.se/product/5011075648/thinkpad-x1-carbon ). My only concern with this laptop is that the Ctrl and Fn keys in the lower left corner are placed in the wrong order. As far as I understand, in previous generations of the X1, it has been possible to swap the functions of these to keys either through the use of a BIOS feature or using some form of software called Lenovo Vantage.

 

Despite extensive googling, I have been unable to find anyone confirming that this is still possible with the generation 6 version of the laptop. Does anyone know whether this is the case or not?

 

Thanks in advance!

It would be sweet if the Ctrl and Fn keys are not in the wrong order to begin with.

The better solution is to just swap the keys in the BIOS as this is a standard Lenovo BIOS setting
