I have Windows 7 on my computer. On my keyboard there is a key labeled "num lock". What is the purpse of that key? Why would anyone press that key? Thank you very much. Murrar

Turning the Num Lock on will allow the user to use the numbers on the keypad, turning the Num Lock off will enable the keys other functions such as using the keypad as an arrow pad.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
