Re: Using an External Numpad
Can you tell me the brands and maybe even model numbers?toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
From the research I've been doing in the last couple hours, it seems to be that most external numpads just send the keyboard version of the number-row scancodes, not the numpad version. Therefore Windows has no way of knowing that there is a separate keyboard involved.
Some of the really expensive stuff, like Leopold brand (but not all of them) appear to send the correct sequences, but most of the cheap stuff apparently doesn't, or it's a crap shoot at any rate. But, I'm not paying over $100 for a number pad.
