    Question Key Mappings

    Advertisement



    When I type, I keep hitting the Alt key to do my Caps. Can I switch the mapping of those two keys? And also, for the life of me, I can't understand when the NUM key works. It would appear that I have to hit the Alt key before every time I want to type a number. I would think if I hit the NUM key that it would lock it to numbers. What am I missing?

    To get CAP, just hold the button down for the letter until it capitalizes.

    To get it to do only numbers, press ALT then NUM and it will keep it in number mode for you.

    Hope this answers your questions.

    NUM and CAPs are shift keys, Pressed alone they will give a Capital letter for the next key pressed. ALT pressed alone will give the symbol/number shown on the upper half of the key. Pressing ALT then NUM or ALT + NUM will be NUM LOCK and ALT then CAP or ALT + CAP will the CAPs LOCK.
