Re: numb lock help

After returning home, I restarted NVDA (did not restart the computer) and it fixed itself. All is working as it should now.

First, let's address the most simple possible solution.  Have you rebootted since the problem started? 


If you have and it didn't solve the problem, I'll send another message discussing other things you can try.  For now, I'll say that there is nothing you could have typed that is a command to make such a change.  Whether something you typed caused some sort of malfunction, I couldn't say but there is nothing you could have typed that any designer intended to cause this change


Last, there are many larger laptops with numpads.  .

No, I mean a desktop just as I indicated. Laptops do not have a number pad
unless you by an external.

I have also discovered that it does the same thing with the + - * and /. It
apparently has to do with NVDA because I have it in all programs except
Money Talks where NVDA is asleep and I am using self voicing for that
program as I prefer the way it reads things.
