    Number Lock on new laptop


    Got a new laptop today and number lock refuses to work. Am I missing something glaringly obvious. I made sure WIndows 10 is fully updated

    So when you pressed it nothing happened at all then?
    Mine comes on as soon as I start up and log in
    Did it work before you put in the latest update ?

    No, it's a new laptop received today. It didn't work before I updated or after them.

    Well I kind of fixed it. Being a bit dumb but I have to press the Fn key plus number lock button to enable it. Not used to that at all on previous computer keyboards. On the laptop it has 'Del' above 'Num Lk'. See if I can get it stay on by default now!
