Windows - Numeric keys not working (Numpad)

October 2017


When pressing the numeric keys of the numpad, it moves the mouse cursor, instead of entering numbers. What can be done to disable this setting?


  • Click Start > Control Panel > Ease of Access > Ease of Access Center
  • Click on "Make the mouse easier to use" > Under Control the mouse with the keyboard,
  • Uncheck "Turn on Mouse Keys".
  • Click on OK.
