Numeric Keypadss

on Laptops

HOME   Alt keycodes

Some laptop or netbook computers have a "hidden" numeric keypad similar to that shown in green below. (Note that starting in about 2010, some laptops have a keypad to the right of the keyboard.)

  • The yellow underlines show the / * - + . symbols.
  • The red underlines show the numbers.
  • The NumLock key may be in different locations on different computers, but is likely to be somewhat similar to the yellow rectangle.
  • With NumLock on, the alt keycode method can be used.
