Yes, of course you can. In my laptop it would be at least a few clicks to do that, and then an extra click to close On-Screen keyboard.

Or I can simply click the Numlock shortcut I have on my Quick Launch Toolbar (highlighted, screenshot might look unfamiliar for I have Taskbar vertically on the left):

BTW, got it working on all laptops I have tried. Don't know why it didn't first work on one.

A PM from another member asked just now about similar script for CAPS LOCK. It's simple, just change the VBS script in tutorial step 2 to this:
Code:
set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.SendKeys "{CAPSLOCK}"
Now you have a shortcut which toggles CAPS LOCK on and off.
