    How to disable screen overlay when using external numeric keypad?


    I have a user using a touchscreen laptop (if that has any effect) who is also using an external numeric keypad.

    Every time the user presses or releases a key on the keypad, there's an annoying "123" screen overlay that pops up. It's quite annoying. I've looked in keyboard settings and what I can find of accessibility options, but I can't seem to find out how to disable this.

    Does anyone know how you can disable this?

    I've attached screenshots of this screen overlay.

    Thanks!

    Numeric keypad for PIN sign-in option

    Hi Scott,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft community.

    1. Are you referring to onscreen keypad numeric pad?

    2. Are you trying to add external numeric pad?

    I suggest you to provide the screen shot of the screen where you have only keyboard input available.

    Follow the steps given in the link below to provide the screenshot.

  3. Numeric Keypad Won't Work! - Windows 10

    My numeric keypad only works on the login screen! I searched the internet and I couldn't find the answer. I would try and type numbers using the keypad on other programs, such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Netflix, and it wouldn't type any numbers.
    I contacted a support line but they didn't give me a great answer. After some digging, I:

    • Open Settings
    • Select "Ease of Access" Settings
    • Select "Mouse" Settings
    • Turn off "Use numeric keypad to move mouse around the screen"
    • Make sure NUMLOCK is turn on or "Locked"

    Test it out and I hope it works!
