    Numbers Keypad opens apps as well as typing numbers


    I'm talking about the keypad at the right end of the keyboard.
    When I press some number keys, apps open; if I use the numbers at the top of the keyboard, they work as usual.
    I can't find this specific issue anywhere online.

    1 opens Google Chrome
    4 opens the volume level
    7 opens the calculator
    2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9 work normally
    Nothing is turned on in "Ease of access center"
    I checked Google Chrome, and the 1 key is not set up as a shortcut

    How do I stop the numbers keypad from doing this?

  3. Keyboard home line typing numbers as well as letters.

    Hello Skyler,

    This instance could have been caused by Num Lock. Try these steps for us to fix this:

    • Press the Start key + R.
    • Type "osk" in the box and hit Enter.
    • On the screen keyboard, try toggling Num Lock, Scroll Lock and
      Caps Lock a few times. Num Lock might be stuck on your keyboard (Num Lock key isn't working).

    Please let us know if that resolves your concern.
