There is NumPad section on keyboards.


There are double function of buttons on NumPad.


For example a button on the NumPad function 1 is "delete" function 2 is "comma" 


When you press "CTRL + ALT + Num Lk" you switch function 1 to 2 for all of these buttons.


Normally I've been using function 1 set for these buttons. When I need to use function 2 I switch the mod by hitting "CTRL + ALT + Num Lk".


However on every restart "function 2" comes as default function set for NumPad buttons.


How to set function 1 for as default?

Different keyboards are different. For my keyboard, the keys double as,


1 is to END a running program

2 is to scroll down a page

3 is to move to another page (jump)

4 is the left arrow


etc. So your examples are specific to your keyboard. Update your keyboard driver. Download it from the manufacturers site.

And, in addition to Rocky's comments, the only way I've ever seen to change the function of the number key buttons is the use of the Num Lock button on the number pad itself.  If it's on, they'll do numbers, if it's off, they do the functions noted below the numbers.


And the Num Lock state is generally preserved between system shutdown and start up cycles.
