  3. Thanks all for these tips.

    But can anyone tell me how to retain the number mode when typing many numbers without having to press tha “alt key” each time or holding it down continuously to enter numbers.

    This is a real problem for me when entering numbers especially when submitting a form or inputing credit card numbers etc>

  4. I got the info requested on my last post:

    To turn on the Num lock, alt+ left shift key.

    To turn on Cap lock, alt+right shift key.
