Toggle Key

Ever go to use the number pad on your keyboard.. typing away but hey.. it's not working?  This little tip is for accessiblity but it sure comes in handy when entering a lot of numbers or when you are not looking at the screen. Here is a great little hint.  It is called the Toggle Key and allows the computer to make a sound when the CAPS, NUM, or SCROLL LOCK keys are pressed.

So, how do you turn on this little toggle trick?  In Windows Vista and Windows 7, The keyboard shortcut to turn on/off the Toggle Key is to hold the NUMLOCK key down for 5-8 seconds. or go to Ease of Access section by clicking the Windows logo key Picture of Windows logo key +U.

You can also go to the 'Start menu, Control Panel\Ease of Access\Ease of Access Center\Make the keyboard easier to use' and turn on the toggle key. 

Making your computer easier to use.. until next time!
