Hi Michael ,

Some BIOS have multi functions, for example pushing F2 on start up may take you to a Boot order page where you can see the BIOS settings in the background but cannot access them.

It may be worth trying other F keys to see what it will "jump" to, also going to Lenovo's site and typing in your model laptop in the support section may offer manuals/info which could help understand what the different keys do.

Assistive Tech means things such as screen readers, and high contrast.
