X1C6: is there any chance of getting Fn+media keys?

2019-06-07, 19:23 PM

I would like to see a firmware upgrade that adds media keys to the keyboard. There are Home, End, Insert, and Delete unmapped. They could be used as Play/Pause, Stop, Previous, and Next buttons respectively. Now I have to emulate them. And the space is unused anyway, why not to add them?

Just wanted to add support for the idea that even the business class laptops (like my P1 Gen 3) should have support for media key bindings.  I'd don't see why they couldn't be the same as on my favorite old thinkpads like T61 where FN+left/right/up/down control play/pause/stop/forward/back.  even if they don't have the actions printed on the keys it would be very useful to me.
