I have a Tosh Equium 3-4 years old XP SP2
I have a set of numeric keys on existing keys, eg Numeric 4 is on the u key.
To use it looks like you press the Fn key and say the u key, but nothing is displayed.
What should I pressing or need to set up to turn on the numeric keys?
Thanks David

A search for this problem turned up the idea that you use fn+f11 to toggle the numeric parts of the keyboard , although you must remember to toggle on and off when typing otherwise some of your letters become numbers ( there should be a light that comes on to signal that numerics are working )

Thanks, Fn + F11 toggle numeric keys on and off.
I wanted this to use short cut keys like ALT + 0189 to enter 1/2 and alike. This worked.
Thanks again David

Just wondered how you found the answer to the Fn+F11 to switch on the numeric keys?
Thanks David

Just tried Googling it myself and got the same result as you.
Thanks for your help. David
