Re: Can't type Alt codes Help!

My inspiron 1545 keyboard layout has the same "problem" : no numkey,no additional numpad.

As a workaround one can use:

>the  "character map" => click START button,type charmap,press ENTER and choose from the table

or

>download "autohotkey.exe" - install it

 http://www.autohotkey.com/

 after installing right click on the desktop - choose "New" from the menu and create a new "Autohotkey script"

 Right click the new (almost)empty script choose EDIT script and add the following lines at the very end.

0::numpad0

1::numpad1

2::numpad2

3::numpad3

4::numpad4

5::numpad5

6::numpad6

7::numpad7

8::numpad8

9::numpad9

save the file,double click the file and try it........

Note:While the script is running you don't have access to the signs above the standard numbers => !,",£,$%^&*()

If you need them again just exit the script.....you may use autohotkey to create a better script than mine-it's just an idea.
