Blue numbers How do you turn on the number key pad (blue numbers)?

Posted by on

  • A Murray Apr 04, 2008

    I tried it - Did not work for me. Do I have to be in a certain program? I can not get the blue numbers to unlock. I pressed the Fn and the Num Lk keys at the same time - nothing changed on the screen, when I tried the numbers, only the lower case letters belonging to the key printed on the screen. I'm not doing something right??

Make sure Num Lock is on (the light belonging to numlock is on).
Then use Fn + Keys with a blue number on it to use the keypad.
Make sure you hold the fn-key, for each number you want to type...
If this doesn't work, try Fn + Esc. If your laptop goes to standby mode, The Function key is allright, and there is another problem. If it does not work, your keyboard may not be installed probably, or may be defect.
Please post some feedback,

Good luck

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.

SOURCE: 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.

The function key for the numbers on the keyboard i can't seem to stop it. When I want to use the letters i have to use the blue funtion key


The "problem" is simply that there is a persistent toggle. If you press "Num Lk" (I've also seen it labeled "Pad Lk" for numeric Pad) it turns on the blue keys, and inverts the meaning of the "Fn" key - it's a way to use that embedded numeric keypad without having to hold down the "Fn" key the entire time.
To fix it, just find and press the "Num Lk" or "Pad Lk" key again. (Note, sometimes these keys are themselves "Fn" keys, so you may, or may not, need to also hold down the "Fn" key to get the right function.) Often there is an indicator light associated with the setting.

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 :-)

Keyboard operation


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.
