Re-assign laptop button

Hi

I use 2 laptops, one has the CTRL button bottom left and the Fn button right next to it, and the other is the other way round. Can i change one of them so that the CTRL button becomes the Fn and vice versa?

Thanks

Probably not possible. AFAIK Fn keys cannot be changed by any of the common key mapper programs available.

Some manufacturer's eg Dell may allow some BIOS change of functionality.

List what model laptops they are and have a look in the BIOSes at bootup. Someone may know more.
