Laptop function keys

  1. Morning all
    I have somehow altered the setting on my laptop keyboard so that when I am typing, my laptop uses the numeric instead of the alpha. (the keyboard has shared alpha / numeric keys that so that the numerics are accessed when you hold down the Fumction key). However, the numerics have become the primary function instead. How do I change this back so that the alpha keys remain the primary function ? Thanks - Its driving me mad !

    There should be a fn lock on your keyboard somewhere.

    Thank you for your reply, Do you know if it is a single function lock key or a function key and an additional key which acts as the lock

    Depends on your laptop. I'd look up a manual for the model if it's not in plain sight on the keyboard. Usually you hold Fn and search the keyboard for a tiny "Fn Lock"(which is the function of another key)
