I have the Lenovo ideapad 110 and the LOCATION of the shift key in the keyboard is in the incorrect place. It is one key to the right, so when you use your right pinkie finger as a typist using all 10 fingers, you now press the PAGE UP key.
Is there any way of changing this other than using a separate keyboard?
(shift key on all other laptops and keyboards is next to the question mark key ... ? not on yours

Hey can you let me know how you go with that program. I just got an ideapad 510 and I’m a typist and I’m literally almost crying right now lol I hadn’t used it yet and I simply went to type in the google search bar and I couldn’t type it! Seriously Lenovo your shift key is a typist’s kryptonite!
 
Yeah they kind of cut the shift key in half to insert that other key. Logically they should have put them opposite of how they did, but no one ever say they used logic. :D

There is a program called SharpKeys that you can install which will allow you to change what keys do what. I have not used it myself, but have heard from others that it is a big help in such situations. You might start there.
