    Heya,

    Quick, but kinda complex question…

    I have a Quickfire TK : http://gaming.coolermaster.com/en/products/keyboards/quickfiretk/

    I like the board, but the situation with the tenkey block and the arrow keys block is a pain in the butt. Basically, I can use the numlock to choose between the numpad, and the arrows and function keys. When I bought the board I thought this wouldn’t be a problem, as if it was annoying me I could get a separate numpad, and have the TK permanently be arrow keys.

    I bought the numpad, but the issue is that if I press numlock on the numpad to make it able to type numbers, the OS also triggers the TK to be numpad on, which defeats the point.

    I want to basically know, if I get a B.PAD pcb and make one up, will I be able to program it, or have it usable as a numpad WITHOUT having to have numlock enabled?

    Many thanks for any help 🙂

    Hi
    Window OS is controling Numlock-Status in common.
    So when you send the numlock signal to the OS from one keyboard regrardless of main keyboard or numpad, it affects both numlock-status of both keyboards.

    But there is a solution ^^

    As you know, our keyboards are all programmable.
    Keymap the numpad’s keys to numbers when NumLock off.
    Set the keyboard to NumLock off.

    Thanks.
