Cant use keyboard symbol shortcuts

HP Recommended
Pavilion Pro bf154sa 14"
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I've just got this laptop and the keyboard doesn't have a number pad or numlock button. On my previous laptop, I used to use a lot of alt + number for symbol shortcuts in word and exel such as alt 916 for the Greek letter delta.  I was just wondering if there is any way to do these shortcuts on this laptop? As it doesn't look like I have a numeric keypad on my keyboard either.

Thanks for reaching out to us on HP Support Forums! As I understand you are unable to find NUM LOCK on the keyboard on your HP Pavilion notebook. Don't worry we'll work together to help you find a solution.


To Clarify, do you mean the button can't be located physically? if it isn't that but something you want to enable as such: Click here for a related HP Forums post that seems to have helped others.


Alternate option to use or toggling between the num lock options via windows: HP Notebook PCs - Enable Number Lock with the On-Screen Keyboard


For details on the Pavilion keyboard functions refer to the user guide: Click here


To disable the Fn function that is a core key to enable the Numlock key: HP Notebook PCs - How to Lock or Unlock the Fn Key
