Windows - Numeric keys not working (Numpad)


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.
