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.

Medion notebook typing normally. getting numbers instead of letters


Examine your keyboard to ensure your "Number Lock" key is not activated.

This activation is indicated by the key being lit up.


If the key is activated, press it to deactivate the lock.

The number lock key will deactivate an entire segment of your keyboard


Start, click Run, and type regedit to open the Windows registry editor.

In the registry, open the below folders.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\
Control Panel\
Keyboard\

Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.

0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon.



hope this helps

How to gat it to type letters it is stuck on numbers


Number Lock is enabled.

Look for a 'function' button usually labeled 'fn' and in a different color.

Hold that down and then hit the Num Lock button.

If you don't have a 'fn' button just hit the Num Lock button.

10 key numbers on laptop will not shut off unless i hold th fn


Have you tried pressing Number Lock? The key may be labeled "Num Lock". If the Number Lock key is labeled with a different color than the letter keys, you may have to hold the corresponding colored key (like Fn or something) while pressing the Num Lock key.

When I type a letter I i get 5 or 6 not the letter??


You've probably got number lock activated / deactivated. This is especially common if you're using a laptop computer. Look for the "Num Lock" button on your keyboard and try pressing it. If you're using a laptop and the Num Lock button is a different color, you might need to hold another key "Fn", Shift, Cntrl, etc while pressing "Num Lock".
