      I've requested a home page change from Google..

      Thanks but it hasn't been hacked - I let the domain lapse, and I can't update the link on the Google project as google code has been sunsetted.

        Sorry, KeyMapper can only remap single keys. Perhaps a gaming forum could recommend a good keyboard?

          What I would advise would be to export registry files containing the settings you want. You would need to log off and on again or reboot depending on what kind of mapping (or if you were running Windows 7) though.

            I think generally Fn keys are handled by the laptop’s own keyboard driver itself, and don’t produce recognizable keyboard codes which can be mapped. I take it you tried using Key Capture from the Create Mapping entry in the Mappings menu on the Lenovo? What did it recognise it as, out of interest? If a keypress code is produced which is unrecognised by the software, it writes an entry in the log, but when the keypress is handled directly by the keyboard driver, it doesn’t generally bother passing the keypress on as a keyboard code or pass it on as zero – keyboards with media controls often do this, rather than using the recognised codes.

            The Lenovo must be catching the keypress and not passing it on, which is why the mapping doesn't work.
