There is a key, I belive it was by the F12 key, That you push along with the FN key to lock or unlock the FN keys. It should have a blue picture of a lock. Hope this helps.

What are the names of kyboard and its keys ?


it is only for a computer keyboard hope it help from you.

A computer keyboard serves as a main operating tool for accessing and inputting data into a computer. The keyboard features many functions and keys that a user may never use, but is still essential to some users. Understanding the keyboard can improve computer knowledge and use.

QWERTY Pad

The "QWERTY" pad is main sections of letters on the keyboard. These letters are mainly used for typing and also as shortcuts in programs like Windows Movie Maker, Adobe After Effects and computer games.
Number Pads

The far right side of the keyboard features a number pad that resembles a calculator. This number pad is essential for programs like Excel, but can also be used to input numbers as a typing function. More numbers are just above the "QWERTY" keyboard that also feature symbols when the "Shift" button is used.
Arrow Keys

The right bottom of a keyboard features four directional arrow keys. These keys provide navigation through word processing documents and also serve as scrolling functions in web browsers.
F Bar

The top of a keyboard features the "F Keys," a selection of keys that extends to "F12" on most keyboards. These keys serve different functions. For example, "Alt and F4" exits out of a program. "F1" will start the typing helper in word processing programs.
Extra Keys

New keyboard feature shortcut keys at the top of the keyboard. These include shortcuts like "Power," "Sleep Mode," "Calculator," "My Computer" and "Web." Some also include media controls for movies and music.

I have a packard bell laptop and i want to use alt codes, but furst i have to enable Num Lock. The problem is there isnt such a key on the keyboard.


The ALT codes can be entered on the number pad with or without NUMLOCK on. On a laptop, if there is a separate number pad then there is usually a button marked NUMLK or similar. On smaller laptops the number pad is shared with other buttons and there will be a 2nd FUNC or similar button to allow the buttons to operate as a number pad.

Unlock numeric key pad on lap top


your laptop should have a blue FN key (Function) that will work in conjunction with other blue keys on teh keyboard. most laptops this is located in the lower left, next to the ctrl key. Look to the right top on your keyboard for a one labeled numlk. hold down teh left FN key and tap the right num lk key and you just turned off the numbers lock.

There is another option that is a little more intense - if interested let me know that laptop type you have.

Number pad


You can't make the alternate characters like °, ®, ♂, σ etc with a combination number pad. You need to have a seperate number pad. I use a $20 plug in keyboard.

Keyboard letters coming in to numbers


Generic comments

Are you using a lap top? If so ... the is a probability you have the num lock on which turns certain keys into numbers (they have little blue numbers on the keys) so you can use the "key pad" in the middle of your keyboard. Press the Fn (probably blue too) and num to turn this off.

If you are on a desk top ... you are going to have to look in the help section of your software for an answer to this problem'

Sorry, I tried :-)
