Num Lock key

Enable or disable the numeric keypad

26.OCT.2017 / updated: ---:
Num Lock key: Some keyboards have two numeric keys. One above the alphabet buttons, and one on the right of the keyboard called dedicated keys, and usually the dedicated number pad is omitted on smaller laptops or notebooks to allow for their compact size. The number pad on the right is rarely used, and the Num Lock button must be enabled when using numeric keyboards. This Num Lock button enables or disables the numeric keypad.

Quick tip: If the numeric keys on the right are disabled, nothing generally happens after touching, only the cursor moves to the beginning of the current text line. If you need to use the numeric key frequently, we recommend turning on the Num Lock button.
