Lenovo X120e Laptop keyboard

Our district recently bought a bunch of the Lenovo X120e laptops.  I think it has been one of the finest technological moves our district has made.  We now have about 700 of them at the High School/Jr. High level.  The students are using them frequently and as a district we are getting away from all the "handouts" that we have been accustomed to giving for the last 100 years or so.

As part of the change we also put Edubuntu on the machines instead of Windows.  At first I was very hesitant of this idea, but now I am a huge fan of the Linux based software.  It is faster and if you plan on using it for mostly cloud computing then Ubuntu is the best.  It is fast and from the stand point of a technology person, it is wonderful that if a computers operating system goes bad you can just use Clonezilla to reimage the machine.

One of the training issues I have come across is that not all teacher know of the ability to use the keyboard as a means of muting, rasing and lowering the volume, and changing the brightness of the display.  This tutorial will show you how this is done.

Tutorial

1.  Every laptop keyboard these days has what is called the "Function key" or the "Fn key."  Many settings depend on this key.  To mute your laptops sound hold the "Fn" key down and then push the "Esc" key.  To raise and lower the volume, push the "Fn" key and the "F1" key or the "F2" key.  To dim the display hit the "Fn" key and the "Delete" key.  To brighten the display hit the "Fn" key and the "Home" key.





















That's all there is to it.  Let me know if you have any question or need another tutorial on something else involving the Lenovo X120e laptop.
