    Lenovo Laptop Owners: How do you get into BIOS with Fn key?

    I was working on a Lenovo laptop this weekend. Could not get into the UEFI Bios using a function key.
    I could get to the Boot Menu using the Fn + F12 keys however.
    I had a lot to do, so I had no time to spend screwing with it. I just used the Windows 10 Recovery method to get in (what a long, circular process).

    I tried the function keys most common for Lenovo: F1 & F2. With and without the Fn key. I also tried turning off Fast Boot. The system just ignored all.

    So if you own a newer Lenovo laptop, how do you get in?

    Some "genius" at Lenovo decided to make it simple.

    Turn off the laptop and hold the BIOS button with a pen.

    If I had had more time I would just be getting to the > and ? keys now!

    My favorite diagnostic tool was not working either: yelling un-publishable words at it!
