Hi jmm and welcome to Windows 7 Forums. You can also press F1 and the help box should come up. Type in num lock or shortcut keys or something to that effect. You should get some idea's there. Please let us know.There is not a dedicated Num Lck key, so how does my brother turn off Num lck - when he has no idea how he turned it on in the first place.
Sorry .. forgot to say ... it is a laptop (Toshiba Satellite)
Hi Mike. A num lock key will be present when you have both the numbers along the top of your keyboard plus a seperate number pad. The num lock button will control the seperate number pad and enable or disable it. Usually you have to press and hold the num lock key for 5 seconds or so and then you'll get a message come up to turn it on or off, or you'll just hear a beep (it's not in your head it's real lol) and that signifies you've turned it on or off.Hi
Most key boards do have a Numlock key.
Mine is just above the 7 on my number pad.
It is the same place on my wifes laptop.
Windows usually turns it on by default and I have no idea what it actually does.
Maybe someone could fill me in on that?
