    On my old keyboard (with the PC), I could unlock or lock the right hand number pad. It seems to be locked on this one, but I don't know how to unlock it. I have a shortcut key list but I don't see it on there. What shall I do?

    you should be explicit about what keyboard you have so people can help out

    if it's a new apple keyboard you can't

    i don't see why you would want to anyway seeing those keys only serve one purpose unlock your pc keyboard which has multiple functions that can be toggled on/off

    I think I said that backwards. I cannot access the right hand number keys. They don't work. I assumed that it was a lock/unlock keystroke. But if it is a faulty keyboard, I assume it is too late to take it back. And yes, it is a new Apple keyboard.

    No, I couldn't find a num. lock key. That would have made it real easy though!

    simple as pie

    where number lock is usually located on a pc keyboard, mac keyboard has it labeled as "clear". just click the "clear" button located on ur numberic pad and u have either locked or unlocked the pad.

    Thank you so much. I was still without a fully functioning keyboard over a year later!
