I have a Mac computer and the key board Num Lock won't turn off. I tried Fn=Shift+NumLock or Fn=NumLock but still won't unlock, Help


Hi Kip,

On the right side of the number keypad on a Mac Laptop, there is a 'Clear' button above the number 7. Press Shift + Clear to turn Num Lock on. Press that again to turn it off. If the keyboard doesn't have a number pad, press F6.

Unlock number lock


On a laptop, the "Num Lock" key has a function slightly different than the one it performs on full-d desktop keyboards. Activating "Num Lock" on a laptop usually transforms a set of central keys, including many letters, into number keys, allowing typists used to entering numbers on a keypad to type efficiently. While on desktop keyboards "Num Lock" usually has a dedicated key, on laptops it often shares a key with another function on MacBooks, for example, it shares the "F6" key and you must hold down the "Shift" or "Fn" key to activate it.

Look for the "Num Lock" key on your laptop's keyboard. This is usually near the top of the keyboard. If the key says nothing on it except "Num Lock" if that's the only function the key performs you can just press it to activate the lock; a light will probably go on somewhere to indicate that "Num Lock" is on. If the key has multiple functions, you'll have to hold down a different key while pressing it. Hold down "Shift" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears above some other writing on the key, the way various symbols appear above the numbers on the keyboard's number row. Hold down "Fn" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears in a different color often light blue that's shared by the "Fn" key.

Check caps lock, if your on a laptop make sure num lock is off hit num lock and try again, num lock will incorporate numbers with the letters because there is no 10 key keypad on most laptops. Also check that shift key is not stuck tap each shift key twice then try again.

Check 2nd Function keys. The problem you describe is normally a Fn +numlock keystroke on most systems

Simply change my keyboard from typing numbers instead of letters..I.e. I'm trying to type yonkers and it gives me y6...I know it is a simple F6 or F2 function but I forget. Its been a while since I u


You need to press the NUM Lock key.
The NUM lock key is usually the same key as the ScrLk key but to select the NUM lock you need to press and hold down the Shift key and then press the NumLk/ScrLk key. A LED light will light up to indicate the number keypad is on.

If you press the Fn and Num Lock at exactly the same time, it usually won't work. Hold down Fn key first, then press Num kock. See if that works.

Can you please clarify this
  1. Do you keys not respond at all
  2. Do you get numbers when you want letters or otherwise letters to numbers
  3. Or does it respond only in one mode numbers only or letters only
My suggestions
  1. If its situation 1 then try reastarting your machine, and unblocking the num lock and vice versa
  2. If its situation 2 just try unblocking num and blocking back by turning on or off the num lock, its just num lock or FN + Num lock in some PC
  3. If its situation 3 just restart your computer.
