Using the keyboard

The keyboard has full-sized keys and an embedded numeric keypad, separate 
cursor, lock, Windows, function and special keys.

Lock keys and embedded numeric keypad

The keyboard has three lock keys which you can toggle on and off.

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 symbols are not printed on 
the keys.

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. A better solution 
would be to 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.
