Function and F6 usually will do it. But if not for your computer just press and hold the function button and LOOK for one of the F buttons with a pad lock on it (then press that). That is usually a safe bet.

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.

  2. Select the Keyboards and Languages tab.
  3. Click Change Keyboards .

  5. Select the keyboard(s) you want to use and click OK .
    Figure 5: Add input language: US Dvorak keyboard selected.

    The new keyboard is added to the list of available keyboards and a keyboard icon appears on the system tray, allowing you to switch between the keyboard that you want to use with the mouse.

Locked keyboard buttons


You need to find the special function key that, when used with the Fn key, locks the Fn function on. On my keyboard it's the F11 key.
Press the Fn key and that key and your keyboard will return to normal.
