The Hidden Numeric Keypad on Your Laptop

Laptop keyboards would often come without a "dedicated" numeric keypad on the right unlike most common desktop keyboards.



While it is always an option to purchase a separate numeric keypad, laptops do come with an "embedded" numeric keypad on its own keyboard.



The numeric keypad on laptops is not really "hidden", but it can go easily unnoticed for new owners. Do not be ashamed, this is a fairly common oversight.

To use the embedded numeric keypad on your laptop, follow this 8-step guide:

Cursor Keys Using the Hidden Numeric Keypad
(For ASUS laptop owners)

In addition to being a hidden numeric keypad, some of its keys can also be used as alternative cursors while Number Lock is ON or OFF.

8 = Up
K = Down
U = Left
O = Right


Number Lock OFF - Press [Fn] + [Cursor Key]
Up = [Fn] + [8]
Down = [Fn] + [K]
Left = [Fn] + [U]
Right = [Fn] + [O]

Number Lock ON - Press [Shift] + [Cursor Key]
Up = [Shift] + [8]
Down = [Shift] + [K]
Left = [Shift] + [U]
Right = [Shift] + [O]

Other laptop manufacturers may have a similar implementation on their hardware. Be sure to refer to the user manual for these convenient features.
