  1. FN keys and navigation keys flipped FN function is the first action. Want to flip them back...


    Laptop: Lenovo ThinkpadOS: Windows 10When clicking navigation keys Volume Control, Airplane Mode, etc at top of my Lenovo Thinkpad's keyboard, it performs the FN key function, not the normal function. I must've installed or accidentally clicked something because this was not a problem before a few hours ago. In order to change the volume using the volume increase button, I have to click and hold the 'Fn' key first. Which is what I used to have to do to achieve the FN key function. I want to switch it back to the navigation action being the first action, not the FN function. Does anyone happe

    :)

    FN key always on

    If you press “Num Lock" (might also be labeled "Num Lk”) (I’ve also seen it labeled “Pad Lock” for numeric Pad) it turns on the blue keys, and inverts the meaning of the “Fn” key – it’s a way to use that embedded numeric keypad without having to hold down the “Fn” key the entire time. To fix it, just find and press the “Num Lock” or “Pad Lock” key again. (Note, sometimes these keys are themselves “Fn” keys, so you may, or may not, need to also hold down the “Fn” key to get the right function.) Often there is an indicator light associated with the setting.

  3. FN key always on

    To clarify, I was saying "Accessibility" features maybe be controlled via the BIOS, not the Fn keys. And one of the Accessibility features makes the keys "sticky". This allows folks with some disabilities to press, for example, the Ctrl key, then the Alt key, and then Del in sequence instead of all at once. Same with the Fn key. The sticky feature would let you first press the Fn key, and then the F9 key (for example) and not Fn + F9 at the same time to enable/disable whatever Fn + F9 does with that notebook (it is the touchpad on my Toshiba).

    FN key always on

    Fn key got absolutely nothing to do with BIOS.

    It just requires some bizarre combination. One of this should do the trick:

    fn + scrl
    fn+ num
    fn + F11
    fn + F8
