"Install" a T6x-style Kb on a T43 ???

#1 Post by Annecy » Sat Apr 14, 2018 1:12 am

Is there a/ny way/possibility to ...
install a "Lenovo'ed" "T6x-style" KeyBoard" on a T43 :?:

I've been using "RegEdits" .. .for 10+years to remap keyboards ~
which I first started doing on my T30 ...
I even did/do some remappings on my T61 ...

I just think that a "proper Windoze KeyBoard" would
be a (quite) nice T43 enhancement ...

I actually quit using my T43 ... for a year or so ...
in no small part 'cuz of the IBM/ostrich KeyBoard :roll:

Not as far as I know.

You can use the Thinkpad Keyboard Customizer to remap Right Alt (or something) to serve as the Windows key. It's already much better than without it.
Thinkpad 25 (20K7), X1 Carbon (20HQ), Yoga 14 (20FY), T430s (IPS FHD + Classic Keyboard), X220 4291-4BG, X61 7673-V2V
T60 2007-QPG, T42 2373-F7G, X32 (IPS Screen), A31p w/ Ultrabay Numpad, A21m 2628-GXU

For 10+ years (for various reasons) ...
I've always created/applied (at least) the following KeyBoard remappings:

On all my laptops

F1↠Delete
[{↠PageDown ~|~ PageDown↠[{
]}↠PageUp ~|~ PageUp↠]}

On all my IBM/Lenovo "ClassicKB" ThinkPads
wwwBack↠HOME
wwwFwd↠END

On all my IBM ":roll: strich" "ClassicKB" TPs
CAPSlock↠LeftWindows ~|~ HOME↠CAPSlock
RightAlt↠AppsKey
