Is there a way to set the keyboard up so that when I hit the [3] key above the qwerty keyboard it automatically types a [#] instead of the [3]? I prefer to use the numeric keypad on the right side of my keyboard for typing numbers and would rather avoid having to hold down the SHIFT key to type the symbols.

Tedster, I am actually wondering about locking the 1 through 0 keys, not the F1 through F12 keys. And more specifically the 1 through 0 above the qwerty keyboard, not the numbers on the right side of the keyboard.

Yeah... Function Lock is for the F# keys. It's also not a standard feature on many motherboards. Anyway, as for the answer to the question:

No. You have to use Shift..... or... wait...

Well, you MIGHT be able to use StickeyKeys (A Windows Usability tool) and keep Caps Lock on.... but that could make a big mess really fast...

So no. You have to use Shift.
