    My husband gave me a Mac Mini for my birthday. So far so good but it is a little frustrating learning a new operating system after working with MS Windows since the beginning.

    I'm using my Dell flat screen monitor and keyboard and my Microsoft wireless mouse. With MS windows I used the keypad on the right side of the keyboard for the arrows/pgup/pgdn/home, etc. to move around the screen and did not use the number functions (I turned number lock off). With my Mac Mini it only gives me the numbers and the number lock OFF does not work.

    Question: how can I turn the number lock off so I can use the arrows/pgup/pgdn/home, etc. on the keypad?

    Macs don't have a number lock feature, except on laptops. You'll just have to get used to using the arrow keys.
