Lock Keys and numeric keypad

The keyboard has three lock keys which you can toggle on and off.

Lock key


Caps Lock

When Caps Lock is on, all alphabetic characters typed are in uppercase.

Num Lock

When Num Lock is on, the numeric keypad is in numeric mode. The keys function as a calculator (complete with the arithmetic operators +, -, *, and /). Use this mode when you need to do a lot of numeric data entry. A better solution would be to connect an external keypad.

Scroll Lock <Fn> + <F12>

When Scroll Lock is on, the screen moves one line up or down when you press the up or down arrow keys respectively. Scroll Lock does not work with some applications.

The keyboard has a numeric keypad with cursor-control keys.
