on most laptops the blue fn indicators are printed in blue and shared with some other key.

activating num lock

by LillyLotus In reply to NO NUM LOCK KEY ON MY LAP ...

Then there IS a way to activate your num pad if its inscribed on the keys of your laptop keyboard...

There should be to the top right of your keyboard a row that says "Delete, Insert, Prt Sc ect(print screen, should be on the F1-12 keys row). Along that row there SHOULD be a key that has "Num Lk" or something that has the reference to "Number Lock" If the color of the inscription matches the Fn key to the bottom left of your keyboard then hold down Fn + that key, if not just tap the key once and it will activate where on your keyboard that has the Number Pad inscribed, it will act as if its the Num Pad and not the usual keyboard functions.

For my keyboard this layout is on: 7-0, u-[, j-;, m-/.

Is to be excused. (She) may be, but, dipping her toe into old, safe, uncontroversial waters, unoccupied by sharks such as yourself.
