Default ThinkVantage button function

Hello,

 

I did a clean Windows 7 installation on my x200t and installed all updates from System Update and Windows Update.

 

However, I'm wondering that the blue ThinkVantage button does not serve any function.

 

What would be the default function and what do I need to install to get the functionality?


Thanks!

Hi mw008cq2,

 

Welcome to the forum Smiley Happy

 

If I'm not wrong you will need thinkvantage toolbox. Have you installed it? If not, you can download it from here:

Hope this answers your question.

Thanks for your answer. 

 

I didn't install it and it wasn't offered by system update. 

 

I was just wondering why...

Re: Default ThinkVantage button function

Just FYI, I believe the ThinkVantage toolbox is discontinued now. Lenovo has introduced the Lenovo Solution Center, which i believe is the function for the blue button now. X200 may not be supported though.

You can make the Blue Button start any application. Read my post here:
