Lock Key

Description

Caps Lock

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

Num Lock <Fn> + <F11>

When Num Lock is on, the embedded 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. Another solution would be 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 embedded numeric keypad functions like a desktop numeric keypad. It is indicated by small characters located on the upper right corner of the keycaps. To simplify the keyboard legend, cursor-control key symbol are not printed on the keys.
