Hi, I have been using my new Yoga for about a week and for some reason the F keys only work the extended function (ie., f4 mute/unmute mic)I was expecting that the Fn-F key combination would handle this and the standard F key combinations would still work (ie, alt-F4, close app, Ctrl-F4 close current open document in app).How do I restore the standard functionality?

Greetings All,I have a brand new yoga 710 with windows 10.  I am generally impressed with it, with the exception of the poorly designed keyboard.  Defying 80+ years of standard keyboard formatting, on the 710, the 'Right Shift' key is only half-sized, and it is shared with the 'PgUp' key, conveniently placed to the right of the PgUp key.?  Every single time I am typing on this keyboard (including this post), I am moving the cursor up instead of capitalizing a letter.  I cannot even hit the Right Shift key while keeping my fingers on the home row, my pinky finger will not reach it, it is that far, and I am consistently hitting PgUp instead of Right Shift.  Suffice it to say, it is completely maddening, and I will return this if I cannot find some simple solution.  Given this design flaw, I have looked into remapping/reassigning the PgUp key to become the Right Shift key.  I have read that it is possible to remap other keys, but I have not seen anything for my specific situation.  I would imagine that there are myriad yoga 710 owners who would greatly appreciate this fix.  Thanks for all your help!!!

Hi all, I bought a Lenovo S1 Yoga. The shift key only works with certain keys but not other, important ones like T. It is extremely inconvenient and makes this laptop unsuitable for work. Characters like the semi-colon are completely unavailable on this laptop now. I have already read through quite a few forum posts to find the solution. I have tried using the device manager to uninstall the keyboard, have used Lenovo vantage to find the latest drivers and install them and have also tried turning all keyboard ease of access ommands off. Nothing seems to fix this issue. It seems to be a software issue, rather than Hardware as the shift key works with about half of the keyboard. It does not fix itself when working on the command prompt. Please could someone provide an adequate solution to this problem. Thanks,SZ

So I just got a Lenovo yoga 700 and I've noticed this issue. When I switch between the various modes (Laptop, stand, tablet) the quality of audio changes for some reason. for example when I switch from laptop to stand, once the device has recognised that I've changed modes the audio becomes quite tinny. this is very annoying when listening to music or even watching a movie and I've ended up using laptop mode even though the stand mode would be much more appropriate. I've had a little look for a solution, I've tried disabling the volume leveller in the Dolby Audio Manager to little effect. there must be some sort of setting causing this issue if anyone knows can you help me out? thanks

Hi there! I've had my Yoga for about 2 years now, and recently updated it when Lenovo Settings prompted me to download Lenovo Vantage instead (probably about.... two weeks ago or so?).  Since I downloaded Vantage, though, the color temperature of my screen keeps changing. Sometimes it has more of a blue tone, and other times it goes ridiculously yellow. It's not happening in response to changes in lighting (it's happened three times as I write this post, and I've been sitting on my couch with my blinds closed the entire time), and I've made sure dynamic brightness control as well as eye care mode are turned off. Even with both turned off, my screen keeps changing color, and it's only happened after installing Vantage--none of my other programs would be doing this, and hadn't been affecting things until the installation. Any thoughts?

address bars and drop down menus in firefox, windows explorer plus all screens on windows xp flash constantly and will not allow me to select items from these bars or many other buttons and functions in the window itself. mouse options are available when i right click. shift button redirects to a java script scratchpad, so i cannot type capital letters or use symbols.

I have a Lenovo Yoga 720 13" and a Bamboo Ink Smart Stylus to use on it, both of which I got this week. For the most part they work together really well, but when the Yoga is in tablet mode and I rotate the orientation from landscape to portrait, it will no longer register the pen's signal. Even weirder, it won't register it after I flip it back to landscape, or even when it's back in laptop mode. The only way to use the stylus on it after it does this is to restart the laptop altogether. The Bluetooth still works; I can still open apps by clicking the end of the stylus. I just can't actually write anything with it. Is there an easy fix for this, some setting I can change that I'm missing? Or does this indicate a bigger problem? If anyone can shed some light on this, it'd be much appreciated.

Hi folks, Do you experienced this issue with your laptops that randomly popping the Start Menu on your Win10. Also some of items in desktop are moving around and also even though I set the lockscreen to sleep by "Never" but it will lock around 3-5mins. Is this known issue for the drivers or for this model?

A:[ISSUE] Lenovo Yoga X1 1st Gen - Popping of Start Menu in Win10 | Items are changing and moving arou

The random start menu popping is a known issue. In fact it has just been fixed!  Download this update here: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/fi/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-x-series-laptops/thinkpad-... Remember to keep the notebook display on when you update. If you switch to external displays it willl not find the notebook display. Icons moving around the desktop is probably a Windows issue. It happens to me as well sometimes, when I switch between msny displays. About the sleep period. Notice that 'sleep' and 'turn off display' are two different settings. Did you set both to never?

Thanks to Costco's deal on this laptop, got it for $850 new. So far I'm liking it, and it's got big shoes to fill, since I'm replacing my 2010 MacBook Pro 17".  I'm surprised that I actually use the touch-screen all the time now. I wasn't expecting to, but it's convenient to be able to touch in addition to mouse/trackpad around. The biggest complaint is that the right-shift key is small, and sharing a space with the up-arrow key.  The up-arrow is where most fast typists like me would expect the right-shift to be.   Thanks to forum member PCB here is the solution: 1. Download KeyTweak 2.3 -- install it. It's free.  It's a remapping / reassigning software for keyboards.2. Open KeyTweak.exe (I use the Cortana search to find it)3. On the app screen you'll see a small keyboard that's not exactly the same as what you have, but just tap the key "83"4. In the drop-down menu "Choose New Remapping" select Right-Shift.5. Click the "Remap Key" button.  Then Apply.  You don't have to re-start the computer now, but once you do, the up-arrow will now function as Shift! You also have the option to re-map the right-shift to up-arrow but I didn't, because there's also an up-arrow in the number keypad on the right-most side of the keyboard. I created a Lenovo forum account just to be able to share this trick, which is making me like this laptop enough to keep it

A:Desktop Icons shift when changing Multiple displays

Hey W7friend


I am Sampad from Dell Social Media and Communities team.

This issue might occur if the “Auto Arrange Icons” option has been checked.

Step 1: Let’s try to uncheck this option first and then arrange the icons by grid and check if the issue persists.

Follow this step to do the same.

1. Right click on an empty space on the Desktop-> Click on View.
2. Uncheck the option “Auto Arrange Icons”.
3. Check the option for “Align the icons to grid”.

Check if the issue persists now.

Step 2: Also I would suggest you to reduce the resolution of the monitor so that it will not extend beyond the display area.

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

While the Community had a solution for the poor placement of the Right Shift Key on the 710, it cannot be applied on the 910. After installing KeyTweak and attempting to run it, I received "Run-time error '380': Invalid property value." I worked with Best Buy's Geek Squad for hours. They tried every keyboard remapping tool they knew of, and nothing worked. Since we know there can be a relatively easy software fix to this problem -- which is clearly angering many customers, and presumably hurting Lenovo's revenues and reputation -- could Lenovo Tech Support or Product Management please provide the fix?

From what I can tell after hibernation the FN + Spacebar functions differently. After a clean reboot the first fn + spacebar sets the backlight to auto, then the second sets it on and third turns it off. After a hibernation power on the first is auto, but it flashes off the screen instantly and the backlight turns on and off without pause. The second time the backlight stays on low and third time stays on bright and fourth time turns off entirely. What I am trying to figure out is WHY is this behavior different after hibernation, is there a setting I am missing?

I asked why and got no response, but said yes anyways because I use this laptop for work. Remember all I had was a keyboard issue. I received the laptop back, keyboard was still the same. I spoke with support and asked them what they written in their notes for the diagnostics.He said, "keyboard cable is loose and replaced ssd is faulty (no reason). When I called in and told them that I was not able to run my virtual machines (I upgraded to to Windows 10 Pro to use the Hyper-V feature), they told me it was a software issue. They also said that they replaced the harddrive with the same model as I got it from Best Buy in DEC 2016. I tested my VM's that I backed up on the original HD onto a seperate machine and they work fine. My files weren't corrupted and my Lenovo Yoga 910 was not working properly. I then chatted with their tech support and asked for the original HD model.

So i took my laptop for service in an authorized service centre. They said the keypad keys malfunctioing due to the some issue in chip but the same can't replaced under warranty as one of my key was popped out.They said that even if we fix the backspace key which is popped out , other keys wont work as the issue is with keypad chip. My question is why i need to pay for the keypad change as the keypad issue is not only with the popped out key. Actually the key is popped out after the keypad was already got defect. Please help me how to claim a warranty for this case

Hi,I have the following issue with my newly received, out of the box X1 Yoga 2nd gen: Most of the special function buttons don't work: To be specific, only the adjust volume buttons (~F1-F3) and the brightness buttons (~F5 and F6) work. Buttons like the mic off button (F4) dont do anything, no matter if the "Fn" key is pressed or not. I checked the keyboard using an online tool, and all keys work physically, so it must be a software problem. I had this problem directly after finishing setting up windows 10, prior to installing any other software. I do have several keyboard language settings enabled, but the problem exists for all of them. I would appreciate any suggestions!Greetings,Gregor
