Dolby Settings missing in Lenovo Settings app (again)

Question: Dolby Settings missing in Lenovo Settings app (again)

Hello, Windows 10 just updated the Lenovo Settings app on my ThinkPad T530 (running Windows 10 64-bit Version 1607). I no longer have access to Dolby Settings in the app...they've disappeared. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Lenovo Settings app, and also uninstalling and reinstalling the latest Lenovo audio drivers. Nothing is working. Please help, as my volume is very low and I need the volume leveling feature of Dolby Audio. Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

We got users with "clean install" Windows 10 on the ThinkPad Yoga 370 instead of factory image.  in Lenovo Settings, audio, dolby section, the presets that are in OEM load are all missing.  we tried uninstall Lenovo Settings, Conexant audio driver, SIF, reinstall, same things - the enable button is there, but no profiles for dynamic, movie, music, gaming, and voice. anyone have seen this issue (or on other machines?), any idea how to reinstall those?  i wonder whether we are missing some pieces.

Hello!I recently noticed that the Lenovo battery gauge icon is missing from my taskbar, I can't activate it, there's no way, I right-click the taskbar - > Toolbars -> Lenovo baterry Gauge, and it doesnt work. I also open Lenovo Settings and click "about and setting" and then try to set on "activate lenvovo battery gauge" , and nothing happens either, actually, the icon turns "on" but when I click elsewhere it goes back to "off". What can I do? What's happening?

Dear all,
I am in a trouble with Advanced Power Setting on Windows 10.
There are limited options only when I go to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options\Edit Plan Settings\Change advanced power settings in particular Intel (R) Dynamic Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework Settings.
For some of the missing options I followed this page and fixed: www.eightforums.com/.../50890-options-missing-power-options-advanced-settings.html
However I could not add Intel (R) Dynamic Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework Settings in advanced power settings even though followed these links:

Hi, so I just got my new Yoga 910, and wanted to change the settings so the F keys are default and me not needing to press Fn. I found a lot of posts on the forum, where people got it working by having the latest BIOS and Lenovo Settings app from the store. I have the exact same installed, latest bios and settings app. But my input setting screen is just empty, it shows three loading spinners when loading the inputs setting page, but then just goes empty. See attached screenshot.    Anyone else experiencing this? I have updated Windows and all the drivers, also tried uninstalling the settings app and reinstalling, but that did not help either. Hope someone can help.. -- Christian

I have a Thinkpad Twist and the "Automatically optimize for battery life" option under the Lenovo Settings app stopped working after I updated Lenovo Settings Dependency Package to 1.1.1.14. The battery now stays fully charged instead of holding the level steady at 50%.Is anyone else experiencing the same issue?

Hi guys, I've had this problem for around 4-5 monthes but have never really gotten around to looking for a solution. Anyways, here is part 1 of my dilema. Lenovo Settings will not open. In fact, it seems to have disappeared completely, along with several "default" apps, such as Paint and Calculator. However, I am able to see them, yet cannot open them directly. View From the Home Button. Oddly enough, I can still open paint, though I have to do so via right clicking on a picture. Clearly they exist, but whenever I click on them and attempt to open them directly, nothing happens. Another issue I have is that the lock screen is stuck on one picture. I cannot change this picture, instead, when I try to change it, the loading wheel spins indefinately like so. If there is any solution to either of these issues please contact me as soon as you can. As you can imagine it's a little bit annoying having battery saver mode stuck on so I can't charge more than 60% for road trips. EDIT: I should also note that this is a Y50-70 I am using

On T460s, a clean installed Windows 10 64-bit has loaded all the Lenovo drivers. The audio driver works fine, and the Dobly feature can be turned on/off from Control Panel -> Sound. However, the Dobly settings are missing from the Lenovo Settings App. All other tiles are there and work fine.  I recall a Dobly Tile in Lenovo Settings App from T440s and Windows 8.1.

Just got a new Yoga 720 15", fully loaded version. I saw on youtube (OwnOrDisown) that he was able to turn on the battery meter/gauge. I read that you open Lenovo Settings then click on the gear in the lower left. I have nothing useful in that section, and in the battery settings of Lenovo Settings there is nothing to add percentage to taskbar or similar. Windows 10 also has no built-in battery percentage display (really?) other than the never-convenient hover over the battery icon method. Another setting that seems to be missing is the ability to control the Fn key. All of my F1 thru F12 keys are acting as multimedia keys, not as normal F1 thru F12 keys. Pushing Fn + ESC does not change the behavior. Looking in Lenovo Settings, there is nothing under Input...literally nothing...it has a couple spinning wheels for a few seconds then nada. I made sure I have installed every single download for this machine from Lenovo, still no battery gauge option or Fn key toggle. I literally can not push CTRL + F4, for example. The Alt key also doesn't force the F4 function like I've seen before (like, intelligent Fn switching when you push alt). I'm going to go make sure my BIOS is up to date and will report any change, though I doubt there will be. Kind of scratching my head here. Otherwise, I'm loving this machine.

Answer:Yoga 720 15" - Lenovo Settings is missing some stuff

OK I got into the BIOS and disabled "Hotkey mode". This restored the F1-F12 keys back to their normal functions, and holding Fn works to do the hotkey functions. Previously, they worked as hotkeys only and pushing Fn + F1-F12 still did the hotkey. Sadly, Fn + ESC doesn't toggle modes. I guess there is no Fn toggle now...except in Lenovo Settings which is SUPPOSED to have it but doesn't.

Hi, newbie here, hoping for some advice. (Sorry if this was already answered--can't find it on other threads, but might have missed it.) I have two W500s, both have Lenovo Settings app (Windows 10) on them. On one W500, Settings seems to have all the options, but for the other, "Smart Settings" and "Battery" are missing on the left-hand column (so, for example, I can't turn on battery stretch, check out the battery condition, etc.) I reinstalled everything on this W500, from Windows 10 to Dependency Settings Package to the Settings app, and still--nothing on that one W500. So, anyone who has ideas and inclination--why is the app showing up with full functionality on one W500 but not the other, and what can I do to get that full functionality? Thanks!

Hi!I wanted to control the battery charging thresholds like I could in Windows 7 so I recently got the Lenovo Settings app. However, the only thing I can see in there beside the power tab is "Power Status", "More" which links to power options found by default in windows control panel, and "Battery Stretch". I have made sure my power management driver is up to date, as well as the app and both the dependency packages. Any ideas?

Until a couple of days ago all my battery settings were working fine, but now the battery icon just disappeared in the Lenovo settings, so I cannot change anything. This is especially annoying since my chargin threshold is set to 80% and I do not know how to change it with this problem. I do not remember installing any updates, but I did change some things when my pc boots to get rid of a broken Linux partition in my boot menu. All other parts of Lenovo Settings and Lenovo Companion are working fine. Thanks for your help!

Just got a new thinkpad with Win 8, upgraded to 8.1. When looking at the power options in the Lenovo Settings App it looks like a lot of functionality is missing compared to the old Power Manager days. Is there anyway to get the detailed battery health information. Design Wh, Max Wh, Current Wh, Current power usage in W etc. The ability to track the battery's max capacity over time help me decide when to replace it. The "good" condition indication Lenovo Settings gives me is not very useful. Am I missing some magic options somewhere to get into advanced mode? Or has this functionality been killed.

My Thinkpad W530 has a built-in camera and doesn't work anymore. I have used it succesfully around a year ago for skype, but yesterday I tried it again for the first time and it didn't work. I did some research, installed new Camera drivers from Lenovo, new Bios updates and did all the possible updates for Windows and Lenovo systems in general. However it is still not detected. Not in the Camera app from Windows (it says the camera is not detected), but even in the Lenovo settings app it doesn't show Camera (only the other stuff such as Microphone, Fingerprint). I have no idea what to do since as far as I know I have installed all the possible updates and it has worked before. Does anyone know how I can fix it so that the camera settings can be seen in the Lenovo settings app? Thanks in advance!

Answer:Camera settings not shown Lenovo settings app

Hi Bananasplit,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
Can you check if there is any camera adapter showing in ?Device Manager? under ?Imaging devices??
Also check if the camera is enabled in BIOS, under Security ? I/O port access ? Integrated Camera {Enable}.
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!

On my old W520, it had a setting for making the battery last as long as possible.  E.g. it didnt charge it to 100%.  In the tray icon, it showed this. In my W530, which has windows 8, I can find no such option.  In fact, all the Lenovo tools which came with the W520 dont seem to exist on the W530 (eiter because they dont have them for Windows 8, or they dont have them for the W530, dont know which). The only lenovo tools I have are th "solution senter" from red icon in the task bar (which has a battery icon, but the only thing it does is say "batter is in good condition", there are no options or settings, and the thinkVantage button, which just brings up somehting like some shortcuts to control panel items - no Lenovo tools (just things like update drivers, warranty infomration, keyboard settings etc). In the wiondows control panel itslef, are just:lenovo system healthlenovo update drivers 32bit (I never use this as I have 64 bit)Lenovo airbag protectionLenovo microphone muteIn control panel -> Power options is nothing Lenovo specific, and no lifespan mode, it only allows you to set when windows switches stuff off. What happened to all the tools which came with windows 7, including the thing which told you how fast the processor was running, the thing to change your printer etc. with difrferent locations?

Answer:W530 + win 8 - battery lifespan mode and other lenovo settings and tools missing?

Most of the features you speak of have been incorporated into a special ModernUI App called Lenovo Settings.
 
Lenovo Settings @ Microsoft Store. (It requires the Lenovo Settings Dependency package that will install on first launch)
 
There you have Location Awareness, which enables you to set up your location with specific printers, home page, preferred network etc. as Access Connections offered. Then there are slim versions of the power manager and other tools that have been upgraded in this fashion for Windows 8, but due to operating system improvements between Windows 7 and 8, many of the older ThinkVantage tools have become superfluous.
 
The Power Manager, used in Windows 7 can be installed in compatibility mode in Windows 8, and it works just fine if you need the battery charge thresholds options, but it is in no way supported by Lenovo in Windows 8. I run it like that on my W520, and to-date, not a single problem.
 
Lastly, the 32bit Drivers and Updates in Control Panel only indicates the Lenovo System Update client, not the drivers it maintains. It shows as 32bit on my 64bit machines as well, so you're perfectly safe to run it to keep your machine up to-date.
 
Hope this helps.

Having upgraded to Windows 8.1 X1 Carbon, I have noticed in the Lenovo Settings app that the power settings no longer include the extended battery life option (charge to 50% rather than 100%). I've read on this discussion board that longer battery life may be obtained, particularly when using the laptop while plugged into the A/C adapter by storing it at about half its power capacity. So, why is the longer battery life option missing from the Lenovo Settings app? Tim

I used Lenovo Settings on my Lenovo Yoga 3 11 for the battery conservations mode. So I was forced to install Lenovo Companion since it recently replaced Lenovo Settings.Ever since I did this, I have noticed the following:* Screen brightness keeps changing by itself slightly* Screen contrast keeps changing by itself slightly* Colours look muted and unsaturated, and filtered. Makes the sceen look worse than it should.* trackpad is only ignorred if the tablet mode is fully flat. The slightest opening causes the trackpad and keyboard to become sensitive. All of this irrespective of whether Dynamic Brighness Control is enabled or disabled in Lenvovo Companion hardware settings, and regarless of whether recommended hardware settings are used.Anyone else noticed anything similar? I'll report back after I've uninistalled the app to see whether any of these behaviours disappear.

Answer:Noticed issues ever since I installed Lenovo Companion (which replaced Lenovo Settings)

So I deactivated "Change brightness autoatically when lighting changes" in Windows Display Settings. This seems to have been the cause of the brightness and contrast changes, but the colours still look blander than I recall. Sorry to suspect Lenovov Companion so quickly, but the changes coincided with it's installation. Admittedly Windows 10 Fall edition just landed too.

Hello,
I'm having a problem:

After installing a new programm and rebooting, the following probelm ocurred

1) the "all users" icons on the desktop and the "all users" programs on the startmenu are missing.

2) the desktop font has been changes to this awful typewriter style (I think it's courier or something). this font is now everywhere, in all the menue bars, it'sTHE standard font on the xp system.

3) i can't find the little icons, that have been on the logon screen, anymore

4) when i tried to change desktop>appearance, came an error message, that rundll32 is missing in system32
so i found one rundll32 file in the system folder which i moved to the system32 folder. i could use the desktop>appearance then but it didn't solve my initial problem.

5) i then got the tip to check the registry>group policies>nocommongroups settings, but it didn't help

does anybody have an idea????

Answer:Settings Missing, All Users Programs Missing, please help

Hello elcatire

Try the easiest options first

1.. Uninstall the program

2. Do a system restore to before you installed the program.

Do either of these help?

I got a Logitech MX?620 Cordless Laser Mouse, on sale for $30 in a Sam's Club this weekend.Logitech makes nice mice, this one is cordless. A very small dongle plugs into a USB port on my T41, (Win XP, SP2).I downloaded and installed Logitech's SetPoint 4.60 software, Logitech's driver for the mouse. They have two other things to download and install associated with this mouse, Logitech® Connection Utility and Logitech® Desktop Messenger.  I didn't know what the other two software does, so I didn't download either one.The settings for the Mouse, controlled in the SetPoint dialog boxes seem to affect and interfer with the T41 TouchPad's settings. I don't see the exact cause and effect, hence this post. It seems when if I set up a comfortable setting for the mouse, for acceleration and pointer speed, then the touchpad settings are lowered (acceleration and speed are lowered), to the point of being uncomfortably slow.  Then if I modify settings via the ThinkPad UltraNav Wizard (ver 3.05), to speed up the speed or acceleration, the Logitech mouse's speed and acceleration are slowed down.  It seems to be a never ending game, set up one device, and the settings on the other device get changed.  Does anyone know why this is, or have a fix for it?A further note, I've used generic USB mice, the $10 corded kind that plug into a USB port, and have never had this problem.  So the Logitech SetPoint driver/software is the different from using generic mice. ...

Hi Welcome to TSG!!

If you log on as administrator you should be able to delete everything in the C:\Documents and Settings\owner\Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5 folder.

If you sign in as "owner" you should be able to remove everything except index.dat if you close all of your browser windows.

Hi,
Yeah, you may think this seems like just a normal message from oc'ing too much, but a problem-I haven't overclocked anything! It booted to that point, then my hard drive went mad clicking and crashed. This was after it being turned on and off to see if my graphics card was booting because I had no video, but it turned out I had just been downright stupid and plugged it into the onboard graphics. Anyone know what could have happened? Thanks

P.S. would the power drawing thing (molex on my case fan) need to have a seperate connector or just draw power from another device? Thanks.
 

Answer:'Previous overclock settings failed, default settings enabled'

If this happens just once then I wouldn't worry about it too much but the PSU or HDD could have something to do with it.

You can connect a molex connector fan to its own power connector or you can put it on an optical drive's connector for example, but it's ok to do either as they don't use much power.

I just purchased and installed Spyware Doctor. After running it the first time there were 3 issues it could not clean. Two of the three were Rootkit.agent and Trojan.vundo. Upon reboot (and every boot since), windows starts up, asks for my logon, applies my personal settings and them immediately goes to saving my settings. The system them returns to the log-on screen. The same events happen in safe mode. I can boot and get into Windows using a WINTERMINAL disk in my CD drive, but i really don't know what do to from this point. When I try to double-click or run Spyware Doctor, it says there are files missing. Please help!
 

Answer:Windows logs me on, applies settings, then auto saves settings

Welcome to Major Geeks!

First I recommend that you not attempt to run Spyware Doctor anymore since it seems to have been what cause you this problem with logging in. This is about the 3rd time in the last couple days someone has mentioned this issue and each time it was after running Spyware Doctor. To that end, I would ask do you have a log from Spyware Doctor. It may default to saving a log somewhere. I believe they used to save files in as XML (which is not a good idea in my opinion).
Please try to follow the instructions in the below link and attach the requested logs when you finish these instructions.

Erm , I don't really know how it started , but i think it had gone worse these days so im getting worried .

Problems i'm facing
1- "[title] Personalized settings
Setting up personalized settings for:

this appears each time i start up ,

2- my computer lags easily , but not always . sometimes when i afk for sometime and when i come back and i click something it lags and soon theres nothing i can do except pressing the restart button . (i can 'press' the task manager button , but after that it doesn't appear and it gets worse , sometimes it writes that explorar.exe is using very high % of my cpu . )

3- Certain settings Did change like the 'no active audio mixers available' problem , i searched the Internet for this problem and i found the solution using services.msg , i turned it to automatic but after i restart it turns back to the way it is . (Note : the no audio mixers problem seems to appear only after i use the computer for some time , everytime i trstart it turns back normal)
- last time when i press ctrl+alt+del the task manager appears immediately , now , the windows security appears first .

4- Sometimes when i insert my pendrive and after i finish i want to remove it safely , but it says its currently in use or something , i'm pretty sure im not though

There is a software which often changes the proxy settings so I decided to config the internet settings registry right to reject the proxy settings. But When I decided to delete this software and return the rights back, I suddenly found that I can not change
the proxy settings manually!
The detail is that I change the auto proxy url, to let my pc use a pac file and I don't want any softwares to change. However, when I decided to give the rights back and try to change the url back, it never success, and even the same when i'm sure I have
cleared this url in the whole registry, but it back, as it never changes!
I check the registry rights twice or more to make sure that the rights has given back, just like it originally should be. But it never works.
So the result is I have to clear and reinstall the WINDOWS 10 AGAIN!
Never should you save such information both in registry and somewhere I don't know! Or you should let these stuffs out of the ** registry!

Hi,
 
Looking for advice on how to find where the touch pad settings may be hidden on this laptop I'm working on?

The laptop is an acer Aspire 5520-5912 running Vista Home Premium Service pack 2. Any ideas?

Answer:Can't find touch pad settings in Control Panel/Mouse settings anywhere?

Hi loki2007 Usually, Windows install it's own Microsoft Legacy Drivers for a touchpad on a laptop, and these drivers doesn't enable the "Advanced" settings that allows you to control the touchpad. In order to do that, you have to install the laptop touchpad drivers which will add that tab in the Mouse options.Download and install these drivers:http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/Driver/TouchPad/Touchpad_Synaptics_9.1.16_Vistax86.zip?acerid=633639058794305220&Step1=NOTEBOOK&Step2=ASPIRE&Step3=ASPIRE%205520&OS=ALL&LC=en&BC=ACER&SC=PA_4Let me know if they install or not.

Hiya asd123321.

It sounds like you`ve re-installed the system from CD over the top of an existing system, giving you a fresh `Dave`. Have you recently run a repair or indeed, done a clean install ?

As a work-around, can you take the documents & favourites from the old `Dave` and put them in the new `Dave` so at least you`re back up and running again.

Hello there

I just installed Win 10 upgrade from Windows 7 on my computer and I am having some problems to modify system settings regarding pen and touch, specially "Flicks" settings, that I need to disable to have a better performance using a Wacom tablet.

When I go to Pen and Touch>Flicks Windows says I can?t change settings since those are managed by the OS admin, but my profile has admin rights....

So, I decided to enable the Administrator account, to see if using it would fix the issue, but the Administrator account still shows the same problem, with the OS giving the same message.

I even went to settings to restore the PC to default to see if it was not some installation error, but the problem still persists, since even after restoring Windows with no apps installed the OS still gives me the same message.

I saw some people having issues related with that message when trying to change Windows Update settings, and they were able to use a workaround with group policy settings so they could do whatever they need with group policy editor, but I didn't find anything related to the Flick settings there, and even so, I prefer a solution that fix / allows me to make changes on settings, specially those related to pen and touch stuff, that are my really new trouble using Windows 10.

So anyone has any idea how to fix this or at least a way that I can disable everything in Flicks with gpedit ?

I can apply 'Site Zone Assignement' successfully to user:

I can use this to add sites to trusted sites.
When I apply the 'Security Compliance Manager' 4.0 Internet Explorer GPO template to the workstation, the user site zone assignment settings "stop taking". I say stop taking, because according to group policy modeling, and gpresult,
the user GPO is present and applied.

Of note:
If I change the 'Site Zone Assignement' to a computer setting, it takes. {My manager doesn't want to do this}
If I enable loopback processing it does not take.

I've seen this issue on windows 7 and 10 Enterprise x64 clients.

Hi I have been seeing settings change on their own and cannot nail down the cause. The thing I noticed that is ongoing lately is that Internet Options gain custom settings for Trusted Sites and Local Intranet (I am not on a domain, do not connect to work or school, do not manage my computer remotely, do not send print orders from a phone, etc.)The system seems to run too many resources at times. And I get error messages that don't seem to match the environment (looks to me like an error from trying to connect to work etc)Here are my logs. In the next post I will add 2 extra and explain why. https://www.computerhope.com/cgi-bin/process.pl?o=1572815 says it can't understand my new update but there could be something wrong. "Detected potential protocol hijack" in a couple places and this would not surprise me. It also wouldn't surprise me if there were something with the way OneDrive is configured on my machine.It also says it's safe to remove lms.exe ; I always thought there was part of the Intel ME that I could take off and it would be ok, and if this is true I'll be happy to see it go. I'm not opposed to reinstalling Windows, but they don't give you reinstallation media any more with purchase, and I am not sure I can concentrate through the process without a lot of help.

Answer:Internet Options settings change on own--to custom settings

I guess I don't necessarily have to include more logs, just I thought some of the extensions shown in the logs (which don't actually show to me in the browser) seemed to not match up. And because there seems to be something wrong with my imageres.dll files. If it's just that the Windows 7 sector (no I don't know what that is doing; it was already Windows 10 when I bought it) doesn't work it's not an issue, but I've in the past had Restore and Factory Reset stop working, and if this is happening again I need to work out how to fix it. (and prevent it).

I have discovered the root of my problem, it's to do with the Link colour settings in my Internet Browsers settings ( Tools, Internet Options, Colours, Links).

For some reason the links all show up the colour that the Visited links option is set to in the browser settings.

Why the Visited links colour is over riding the Unvisited links colour is one question, but also is there a way of disabling the browser settings in windows so the Dreamweaver settings are what I see?

Cheers

I use Windows XP Pro. My lovely children got to my computer this morning and logged in as me, rather than as "kids". Now, when I try to log in as "me", all of my settings are gone and the scene and settings look like when you log in as the "kids" . When I try to go into explorer, it tells me I have to install it. Same with all other programs. Nothing shows up as installed. If I pull up my programs list, it still lists my programs such as itunes, word, etc., but if I try to run them, they all need to be installed. (Logging in as "kids" still looks like "kids" though.) If I look for my Word documents through another user's Word, I can find them, under "kids documents", "shortcut to me documents". I looked at doing system restore but somewhere in the process it looks like system checkpoints have been deleted because the only system checkpoint it shows is from today and is after the change occurred.

I obviously can access my Word documents but it is my saved email and addresses that I am most upset about. Any suggestions? Would it make things worse to try restarting the computer? Many, many, many thanks.

Hi, I do the downgrade to windows 7 of my lenovo y 50-70, but I have not found the download of Lenovo Settings, there is an another solution to manage dolby audio option and activate the fan dust removal? Thank's for the help.

Answer:Y50-70 Lenovo Settings

Try installing the chipset driver first. Then install Intel Management Engine. For the dolby audio I think it is part of the audio driver. And the dust removal is part of the Power Management.

I purchased a Lenovo Active Pen to use with my Yoga 910, but I can't figure out how to set it up.  When I go to the Pen and Windows Ink settings, there are no settings for the pen.  I scanned my drivers and updated everything, but no luck.  The pen is supposed to be compatible with this model. What am I missing? Thanks!

Hello,
Sorry for the rooky question but am going mad! I have just purchased an ASUS desktop PC from PC world and am completely new to Windows 8. My WiFi doesn’t connect and I am trying to check the wireless settings. Under PC Settings my manual shows “Wireless” between “Devices and “Ease of Access”. Only it isn’t there! Where can it be?

I have 3 user accounts on my computer. One is for administrator, myself, and the kids. Yesterday when I got on the computer the administrator account was missing. This is the account where I have all my information--pictures, documents, email, everything!! I tried a system restore and still the settings won't come back. Please help!!
 

Answer:Administrator Settings Missing

What exactly is missing? The title says "settings missing", but your post says the account is missing. What are actually seeing?

I assume you didn't back up all that important data?

In update 1.3.0.22 of Lenovo Settings' software, the "battery health mode" option was removed. "- [Important] Remove the battery health mode feature from Lenovo Settings Power GUI. If you enabled it in a old version, it will be disabled automatically when you upgrade to a new package. The policy of the battery health mode by the active directory, the support is continued. (Power)" Is the option of holding the battery charge at 50% still available? If so, where can I find the settings to turn it back on?

Answer:Lenovo Settings (Power)

You can turn it on in Group Policy Editor 
 
http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/lenovo_settings_deployment_guide.zip
 
The PDF inside the zip file explains it.  After changing the setting in Group Policy Editor, you have to reboot to make it effective.  
 
Unless your system is always plugged in 24/7/365, this setting has no benefit to you.  That's why we removed it from the GUI.

So I just got this computer and it is more high-tech than I am used to so maybe this is simple, but I have a Y series and the touchpad is driving me insane! When I swipe to the side, things pop up on the side of my screen, I cant click a scroll bar and scroll down or click and drag ANYTHING, and every time I try to move the mouse in a downward direction, it pulls up automatically all my tabs? I just want to be able to move my mouse downwards without things popping up all over my screen. How can I change these settings? There is no simple start button to go to on this thing and the manual did NOTHING to even try to cover this topic. Please help!

Answer:Lenovo Touchpad Settings

Same issues.............just as frustrated.  How do you turn off all these "Advanced Features" and give me back a simple dumb cursor that just behaves like a plain old cursor............nothing else, please.

Dear Lenovo,as you maybe (don't) know, some of us don't care about the stupid, unsecure and buggy Microsoft store.So would you (soon) create a reliable and easy method for us, your customers, to be able to install Lenovo settings and now companion too, and stop forwarding us to the Microsoft store which we don't want to use! Thank You.

A few days ago I turned on the night mode, today I tried to change the settings and turned it off; but the app does not open at all, it just shows the loading screen and nothing else happens, but I can use both Lenovo Companion and Lenovo Account without problems.

I would like to change the FN key settings on my Lenovo Edge 15. I've been reading around and 1. I cant access BIOS for some reason or the keys are different2. There is no "keyboard properties" that can change the fn mode to legacy3. Holding FN key for 20-30 seconds didnt work I would like to permanently freeze the FN key, like I would like to press F1 without having to hold down FN key. I think its annoying that this is set to default and would like to change it asap. Thanks for the help.

I have a new Lenovo X230 ThinkPad with Windows 8 Pro 64-bit. The Lenovo Settings Application is throwing up errors in Windows Reliability Monitor for Lenovo HotSpot Service, LSC, Location Task Manager and others. I do not want this application and I specifically to not want my location tracked or my computer used as a hotspot. This is a work computer and these applications are (1) breaking and (2) interfering with NCP Secure Entry VPN. Please provide instructions here for completely uninstalling the Lenovo Settings Center. All of it. Thank you, .... JDH 













Solved!

Answer:Lenovo Settings Center

Hi JDH!
 
I would start by right clicking on the app on the start screen, then Uninstall. Then check the Programs and Features Control Panel to see if anything else remained behind.
 
The app adjusts your network settings dependent on your location (similar to the old Access Connections). It doesn't track you, just change settings for you when you move amongst networks for which you've created a profile, so you don't have to.
 
As far as I can tell the hotspot feature is just an easy to use shell on top of the Internet Connection Sharing feature which has been part of Windows for a long time.
 
Hope this helps!
