    Hi,
    A few days ago I upgraded my X220 from Win 7 Pro (64 bit) to Win 10 Pro (64 bit) and despite Lenovo not officially supporting Win 10 on X220, I have got Win 10 working. However there's a few annoying niggles which I'm not sure can ever be resolved (already tried the Lenovo System Update tool and Win 10 is installed with latest updates):

    1) Despite having the correct audio drivers installed, I am not getting the orange illumination on the microphone button - speaker mute button is lit up orange though. Can this be fixed?

    2) Bluetooth v4 (i upgraded from v3 last year) is working fine. However I cannot toggle this on/off via Fn+F5? Obviously it can be switched off via the side switch but that also switches off wifi which i do NOT want. Any fix for this? Even if i switch off bluetooth via Windows Control Panel, the green bluetooth illumination remains...can this be fixed also?

    3) I guess Lenovo Power Manager cannot be installed in Win 10 on the X220? Tried the Win 7 & Win 8 versions but got the message that its not compatible with my Operating System.

    Any other tips/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    You could try install the Windows 8 power manager/hotkey driver in compatibility mode. That might help. Or make it worse.

    1. I believe you need to install USB keyboard driver as well. Try both 10 & 8.1.
    3. Check if there's a Lenovo toolbar available by right-clicking on taskbar. It's different, but may prove useful. Also, you may try installing in compatibility mode.
