Preferred Solution: How can I disable Hotkey on a Lenovo Yoga 920 in linux?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have an X1 Carbon 6th Gen and I have the most recent drivers for the hotkey integration: 9.0.1.6 rev 5. As said in the title, my hotkeys don't work after every boot until  I go to 'services.msc' and restart the Lenovo Hotkey Client Loader. Afterwards, every hotkey works including after sleep and until the next boot. Could anyone help me diagnose the problem with the service? 'services.msc' displays the loader as running after every boot, meaning that the service itself has messed up somewhere.

As the current BIOS stands, OS installers - for me specifically, Fedora Workstation - can't see any internal drives. I've read that this is an issue that can be solved easilly with an update to the BIOS, hopefully lenovo will realize how silly this is and fix it.   Until Lenovo makes a change, no linux based OS can be used with this laptop.

Hi, I recently purchased the Lenovo Yoga 330-11IGM and I would like to install Linux because of work. Created a Ubuntu USB Live Stick, tested it in my previous laptop, disabled secure boot and fast boot, enter bios, set boot priority and ready to go. After setting the boot priority, the laptop restarts and when it's going to show the UEFI Ubuntu Menu just like how it's supposed to be, it's not. All I got was a Lenovo logo, and an underscore cursor in the top-left edge of the screen. Tried typing something, didn't work. I thought this was probably because of BIOS mode, so I thought I can change it to Legacy. But guess what? Only UEFI is available.  Can somebody helped me through this because my work is relying on Linux, and I hate how Windows Subsystem Linux behave. Thank you

Hi everyone,I create this topic today with a recent purchase of Lenovo Yoga 730 13IKB,I'm hving a issue with main ltters in my keyboard (with AZERTY)Most of letters in AZERTYUIOP (1st layer of letters ONLY) is not responding, i must let press or press lot of time to write these letters, it's weird because it's in a frequency of responding/not responding (sometimes it's very long and sometimes normal and responding fast). This issue is present on Xubuntu 18.10 and Windows 10.I disabled keyboard functions on the bios but it isn't this functionnality that makes lag.So I think it since I made the latest bios update, I was on IDE Sata Mode and the Bios update changed it to AHCI sata mode.It's maybe that is making issue.It's a big problem because i need to write fast in my job. So what I can do ?

It it possible to disable Win+X hotkey ? without disabling the Mobility Center itself? Or, better yet, use some other hotkey for mobility center (which, though, is probably simple) and bind some other hotkey to Win+X?

I have HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoWinKeys set to 0x01 already.

Additionally, I want to bind (shift+)alt+tab actions to Win+Z / Win+X ? is that possible?
Additionally (in case this won't require a separate tread), I can't bind Win+` (at least in Launchy) ? is there something special about this combination?

Thanks in advance for any help.

You should be able to disable the help stuff by disabling the Help and Support service. (start->type services.msc->press enter) At least that is how it works in XP... haven't tried it in win7 yet.

Hey guys.

I need a way (software, windows settings, whatever works) to disable my computer's internet (or block the connection of an individual process) by simply pressing a key (not mouse) in the keyboard.

Thanks for the help.

EDIT: Windows vista just in case. The disabling on the internet has to be close to instant as soon as I press said key (minimum delay).

EDIT: The key should be global since I'll be pressing it while using a specific process and not on the desktop or anything.

I'm using a Lenovo U300s.  Overall it's a solid laptop, but there's one thing that's really bothering me. I use the shortuct combination, CTRL+SHIFT+T, quite often.  It's supposed to re-open the most recently closed tab in Firefox, Chrome, and IE. Unfortunately, on my U300s, it opens up some screen whose function seems to be to select a desktop image.  I'm not very clear what this screen is supposed to do, but it's clearly not nearly as useful as re-opening the most recently closed tab. Is there any way to disable this? Thanks,Andrew

Here is an image of Windows 7 sound dialog window > playback tab to audio devices.

reason being: skype doesn't have a default audio device as an option so I switch between headphone (reciever) to speaker (PC creative sound card) with a hotkey I defined already using NirCmd. problem is skype doesn't switch along with it. my method is to disable an audio device so that way the next one is effective in skype. complicated but it's the best and only way I can think of without making it TOO complicated as it is already.

Hi, When I'm pressing alt+shift+l I get synaptics touchpad debug information. As this is a combination, that in Polish Programmer keyboard layout is typically used to get letter ?, this key binding is really annoying. The only way to disable this that I've found so far is to uninstall synaptics driver. Though this means also loosing touchpad gestures so I'm reluctant to go this way. As far as I was using WIndows 7, this was not an issue. Anybody has an idea, how to disable this key binding?

Hey everyone, I have one or really two issues, but they may be connected. I bought the Yoga 900 3 months ago and yesterday I found out that the hotkey for disabling the touchpad worked only oneway meaning I pressed it and the touchpad would disable but I couldn't unlock it again no matter how often I pressed the key again (in combination with fn and also without). I needed to go to standby and then log in again for it to be re-enabled. I updated a hotkey driver, and afterwards when I disabled the touchpad with the hotkey it did still not work. So I went into standby and the whole laptop did not react to me pressing the standby/on switch on the right side for like 5 min. It just stayed off with a black screen. After a while it rebooted completely. Ever since then everything works fine except that the hotkey/f6 doesn't do anything now, not even disabling the touchpad. Can anyone help?

When googling, lots of pages say to use the BIOS Hotkey Mode setting, but on the Yoga 920 there is none.  Other pages say to use Lenovo Settings, but nowadays when starting that, it redirects to Lenova Vantage, which has no setting for this.  Hardware Settings | Input has Pen and More, but nothing at all for the keyboard. It's quite crippling not to have fn keys in easy reach without using a bucky key to access them.  Besides, the Fn and Ctrl keys have been reversed on recent models like this one, which makes it even worse, so I'd like to have a setting to swap those too (and apparently there used to be a setting for that too).  My old Thinkpad Helix has the good old keyboard layout, that's what I'm used to.
