12 Tips for your Lenovo Legion Go
If you're a proud owner of the Legion Go or thinking about getting one, you're in for a treat. These tips will help you make the most out of your Legion Go, from fine-tuning performance to optimizing various settings and improving your overall user experience.
Tip 1: Changing TDP on the Fly
First things first, I want to show you how to change your Thermal Design Power (TDP) on the fly. This is super handy for adjusting your device's performance without diving into the settings. All you need to do is hit the Legion Space button and then press 'Y.' The colors tell you everything: purple for custom settings, blue for quiet mode, white for auto, and red for performance. It's a quick and convenient way to adapt your Legion Go to your current needs.
Tip 2: Custom 30 Watts Mode
Now, let's talk about custom power settings. You can switch to a custom 30 Watts mode by accessing the Thermal menu through the Legion Space button. Purple indicates you're in custom mode, and from there, you can fine-tune your power preferences.
Tip 3: Accessing the Command List
Ever wondered what commands are available for your Legion Go? You can easily access the command list by holding down the Legion button and another trigger. This is a great way to explore and utilize the device's full potential.
Tip 4: Entering the BIOS
If you need to access the BIOS for advanced configuration, hold the volume up button and the power button for a few seconds. It's that simple. From there, you can dive into the BIOS settings and make the necessary adjustments.
Tip 5: Adjusting VRAM in the BIOS
Speaking of BIOS, you can fine-tune your VRAM settings there too. Navigate to "More Settings," select "Config," and you'll have access to frame buffer and VRAM settings. It's a great way to optimize your Legion Go's graphics performance.
Tip 6: Improve Your Speakers
Now, let's improve the audio quality. Head to the Relic Audio Console, and by adjusting a few settings, you can make your Legion Go's speakers sound even better. Follow the recommended settings, including leaving the main volume as is and enabling Omni speakers.
Tip 7: Updating Drivers
Keeping your drivers up to date is crucial for optimal performance. Use the Lenovo Diagnostic tool to scan for the latest driver updates or software upgrades. It ensures your device is always running at its best.
Tip 8: Fixing the Mouse Cursor Issue
Some users might encounter problems with their mouse cursor. To resolve this, access touchpad settings and ensure it's enabled. Don't forget to remove any protective plastic from the touchpad – it's often so thin that you might not even notice it.
Tip 9: Joystick Navigation and Mouse Clicks
Want to navigate using the joystick and enable mouse clicks with triggers? It's possible! Follow the instructions in Steam settings to achieve a more versatile navigation experience.
Tip 10: Better On-Screen Keyboard
Switch to the traditional keyboard layout for a more functional on-screen typing experience. This gives you more options and shortcuts, making typing on the Legion Go a breeze.
Tip 11: Claim Your Xbox Game Pass
As a bonus for Lenovo Legion Go owners, you can enjoy three months of Xbox Game Pass. Just open the Xbox app, go to the "Perks" section, and claim your subscription – gaming has never been easier.
Tip 12: Disable the Legion Space at Startup
Lastly, if you find the Legion Space startup logo annoying and want to speed up your device's boot-up time, you can disable it. Follow the provided steps, including downloading a script and configuring it through Task Scheduler.
