Yoga Book YB1-X91F: Halo Keyboard Display Problem - US Layout MISSING and NEEDED

My Yoga Book YB1-X91F displays ON THE HALO KEYBOARD the French layout, with a "tall" enter key and French words on it, and the backslash key on the opposite/left edge of the keyboard instead of above the enter key.

 

I want it to show the standard old IBM-PC-style layout which has a "wide" enter key, and a backslash right above it, and no French words printed on it.

 

My question, is there a proven verifiable way to change the way the Halo keyboard LOOKS and WORKS so it is the standard US Qwerty layout???? I have fought with this for hours.

 

This is for Windows 10 *NOT* Android

 

Please see the illustration which shows what it shows that I don't want, and what it does not show that I DO want. The screen shots are from the web: i have never seen my Halo display the proper layout.

Existing support items are never clear on this exact issue, while they mention keyboard issues, so I am mentioning this. I have set the keyboard in Control Panel to US and Qwerty. The YB1-X91F model is specifically for the US, so I don't know why Halo shows as French.

Hi LenEaveau! 

 

Welcome to the Lenovo Community Forum! 

 

As we were checking here, the Yoga Book halo keyboard is not customizable or it cannot be altered. You may check this article https://lnv.gy/2EPkbP2 and it will show the only option that you can change on the halo keyboard of the Yoga book. 

 

Regards!

So I am stuck with a non-US keyboard?

 

How can I find out which Yoga Books have which keyboard? I checked the specific model number for mine and it says "US" everywhere, and photos of this model online show a US standard keyboard a lot of the time.

It can be determined through the MTM (e.g. ZA150013CA). Can you share us the MTM of your Yoga Book?

You can enter the serial number here https://lnv.gy/2ES9E5x and here's how to find the serial number https://lnv.gy/2ERJMXj - From there, you can get the Machine Type Model of the laptop. You can check the photo attached as a reference.

The first URL is invalid. Is it necessary to use this BEFORE the 2nd URL?

 

Of course it is very difficult to type URLs on a non-standard keyboard.

So, it is true that there is no way to make this Halo keyboard work like a standard IBM-PC compatible (wide enter key with a backslash above it)? 

 

If that is the case, for sure, then it might not be necessary to find the MTM at all.

Unfortunately, there is no way to customize the Halo keyboard. What it is installed is what you get even for a replacement because the layout is intact on the keyboard itself.
