Solved Num Lock

Well there is no "number lock" because it isn't a traditional keyboard. By choosing &123 in the lower left corner you are essentially number locking by bringing up the number pad and getting rid of the letters. If that isn't quite what you are looking for you can use the split keyboard which gives you all the numbers and the letters. Not sure what other layout you could be asking for.

Even with the split on-screen keyboard, if you tap the '&123' key in the lower left corner, you will get a number pad on the right side of the keyboard until you toggle back by hitting the '&123' key again. Works very well. The number pad in the center of the split on-screen keyboard isn't terrible useful when holding the Surface in your hands, but quickly toggling to numbers keyboard works well.

Is there a way to use the num lock function on the surface pro? either on the on screen keyboard or the touch cover
Yes, there is. And I registered for this forum JUST to provide the answer that even Microsoft's TECH SUPPORT couldn't provide me.

Win+R
type: OSK
click: OK

click: Options
check: Turn On Numeric Keypad

click: NumLock

And now after hours of fighting through unnecessary bull**** I can use my Razer Naga in numpad mode without hassle.


EDIT: Why does everyone, including tech support, think that asking for NUMLOCK means you don't know how to type numbers... come on, people.

Hold down the windows key (the one with the window on it) then hit the R key.
When the box opens up type the commands.
