Scroll lock key. On laptops it is usually controlled by a Fn key. Hold the Fn key while pressing the Scroll lock key and it should go off.

How do I unlock my keyboard? On the top right hand corner there is a silver Dell button(that's what it looks like). There are 3 lights with 3 lock emblems, one has the number 9, one has the letter A a


Those "lock" lights are for the NUMLOCK, CAPS LOCK, and SCROLL LOCK features. With each press of the NUM LOCK key, the "9" should cycle on and off. With each press of the CAP LOCK key, The "A" light should cycle on and off, and so on.

There 3 lights on the right top side of keyboard - one is capital lock -one is number lock- what is the third one? the light is on and I don't know what to hit ti turn it off.. thanks


The third one is probably Scroll lock. On your keyboard you should see a key labels Scroll Lock or it may be abbreviated. The key may also have the same symbol as the light. You turn Scroll lock on and off the same way as turning Num Lock on and off. Usually involves using the FN key + Scroll Lock.

Keyboard keys that have purple numbers are locked. Can't type.


Your "Num Lock" is on.
Look for the num lock key (it's similar to the "caps lock" key in function)
If the "num lock" is blue, you may have to hold a blue "fn" key when you press num lock

There's is probably a light at the top of the keyboard that'll tell you when num lock is on.

How can you know when you are in upper or lower case


I have a feeling there are two ways to tell. First, the receiver unit that connects to your computer should have two LED light on them. One will have an "A". This will be lit when the Caps Lock is on. The second LED has a "1" over it, and that's your Num Lock indicator.

The second way will be after you install Logitech's software, text will appear across bottom of your screen (usually in green) for a second or two telling you if you just pressed the Caps Lock or Num Lock buttons.

My Logitech EX110 wireless keyboard has no light indicators for CAPS LOCK and NUM LOCK. Should it have those indicators?


Your EX 110 receiver has 3 indicator lights (LEDs) that display the status of the Caps lock, Function key, and the Num lock during normal operating mode. These lights will also flash when the connect button on the receiver is pressed.
LED A: Indicates that the Caps Lock (Capital lock) key is on when lit.
LED F: Indicates that the F keys are in Standard F Keys Mode when lit and in Enhanced F Keys Mode when the LED is off.
  • Your EX 110 keyboard has an Enhanced F Keys Mode for F keys that provides additional functions you can program. See Knowledge Base article 9526.
LED 1: Indicates when the Num Lock (Number lock) key is on. This function allows the number pad to produce only numbers

Depending on your keyboard it could be scroll lock, caps lock, or num lock is on. You can turn them off by depressing the appropriate keys on your keyboard until you find the one that turns the light off. Hope this helps.
