    The keyboard on this new laptop I have does not have the numpad (not even for the fn key). Does anybody know where I can find a keyboard remapper (the ones I found want me to reboot) that can either quickly switch between the remapped layout and the default one without rebooting; or one that can use the fn key, or both? I intend to remap some of my keys to work as a numpad, but I want to be able to switch them back to default quickly.

    Any help appreciated.

    64-Bit Windows 7.

    But I do not want it to require a reboot (so I can change quickly between old/new) and if such does not exist, one that supports the fn key.
    Plus, I tried the microsoft one; does not even show the numpad. It only makes keyboard layouts for the language bar. A program has got to go into the registry to do what I want it to do…
    I would go into the registry and do it all by myself, but I don’t have the slightest idea of how to do it.

    Well I could, but that would be the easy way out… And I would learn nothing about keyboard remapping.

    dont know then. d’you know any c++, vb or something? im sure you could write a little tool. ‘keyboard hook’ is probably a good search term to start with if you were gonna.

    i could never use a laptop keyboard for that stuff. im well into hundreds of key presses a min on numeric when i get my flow down. cant stand it unless it’s a proper keyboard. it’s annoying enough when the 0 key isnt full size, let alone having the keys in the wrong places.
