    Good chance they don't have them as of yet because Win 10 isn't yet an actual OS (supposedly).
    They might have Win8 drivers that should work in Win10. Or I would hope so if they do have drivers.

    I thought about that as well, but like Jeff said, there should be some Windows 8 drivers somewhere which would probably work with Windows 10.

    Right now I'm trying to get my Windows 8.1 back to the way I like it. Then I'll try your suggestions, Jeff!

    Interesting. I have a Microsoft USB wired-keyboard and Microsoft USB wired-mouse on mine, pressing the NumLock key opens the Calculator. Kinda makes sense as the number pad and calculator go together.

    because Win 10 isn't yet an actual OS
    Since Win10 is the only thing on the HDD it must be an OS or the computer shouldn't be running.

    Windows 10 is still in the preview stages. Some things are not going to work. Some things may get fixed with MS updates and some things may not get fixed until after 10 goes RTM.

    Could it be due to drivers that are not in Win10?? I have the Corsair K40 and the drivers are in Win10 but to get all the colors I have to install software.

    Just a thought..
    Jeff
    But a good thought! Is there anyway I could confirm that?
    First I would go to the MFG website to see if they have any drivers for download for that keyboard.
    If that doesn't work then I would check if there this might be an issue with Win8. If so that solution might fix the issue you're having with Win10. Just a thought again.

    In the end it could just be the numlock issue that is occurring with the current build of Win10. If you like you can always go to the previous build and test the keyboard to see if it works. The numlock issue was not there.



    HTH
    Have a good day,
    Jeff
    Thanks, Jeff! I'll try your suggestions!
    Your so welcome. Have a great day!!
    I have read that there are a lot of keyboard issues with the latest build of win 10 one of them is over sensitiviety of the key strokes along with backlight and numlock problems: these will be improved in the next 21st jan preview update.

    True Lee, but one can always visit the manufacturers website to get the latest drivers, even if only for Windows8, they might work on Windows 10.

    It is not because Win10 does not load the drivers, that you cannot do it manually.

    Can very well be that it works that way.
