Lenovo Thinkpad “Fn” key mystery

On my company provided laptop that I use for work, I frequently use the Fn-“mute” and Fn-“Radio” button combinations, to turn on/off audio and the WiFi radio, respectively. They are so quick and convenient that any other way to do the same feels extremely cumbersome.

For some strange reason, I found that those key combinations were doing something else — weird stuff like bring up some Google Chrome options, and things like that. It was frustrating until I discovered how to fix that.

The Lenovo’s have the Fn-lock (FnLk) feature that can enable or disable the special Fn key functions. You just need to use Fn-Esc key combination to toggle the functions on or off. I was greatly relieved once I found that!
