Num Lock is an important key on your Windows keyboard. The Num lock, when turned on, activates the number keypad on your keyboard. Thus you can use the number keypad apart from the alpha numeric keys. The NUM Lock can be turned on and off just by pressing the NUMLock. When the NumLock is turned off, the numeric keypad will not work but the number keys in the alphanumeric keys will work. When you are using the Number pad, it is necessary that the NUM Lock is turned on. If it is turned off, pressing the number keys does nothing.
