"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.
Current: Thinkpad 25 (20K7), Yoga 14 (20FY), X220 4291-4BG, T410 2537-R46, T60 2007-QPG, T42 2373-F7G
Collectibles: T430s (IPS FHD + Classic Keyboard), X32 (IPS Screen)
Retired: X61 7673-V2V, T60 1952-F76, A31p w/ Ultrabay Numpad

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
