Keyboard Functions
The MiniTouch keyboard is an IBM AT and PS/2
enhanced101/102-key compatible keyboards with twelve
function keys and numeric/cursor control keypads. Please
note the following variations from the standard 101-key
keyboard layout.
The MiniTouch series' space-saving design requires
the dual alpha/numeric function of certain keys.
Since the numeric keypad feature is controlled by
the Num Lock key, an inconvenient situation will
occur when using a computer that automatically
enables the Num Lock key with each boot up. Refer
to the following solutions:
1. If your computer's BIOS Setup utility has a Num
Lock option, set it to OFF.
2. If your computer's BIOS Setup utility does not
have a Num Lock option, press the Num Lock
key to turn OFF the numeric keypad after each
boot up.
Num Lock – Embedded Numeric Keypad
Press the Num Lock key to enable the numeric keypad
function. The Num Lock LED at the top right corner
indicates its ON/OFF status. The shaded keys in the
following keyboard layout identify the locations of the
numeric keypad keys.

Fn – Special Function Keys
The Fn key is used with the embedded numeric keypad and
the F1 and F2 keys to provide several functions. To execute
a function key, simultaneously press the Fn key with the
desired function key.
The shaded keys in the following keyboard layout identify
the locations of the keys associated with the use of the Fn key.
(See Figure 1).
Fn + Numeric Keypad
The numeric keypad will become screen-control keys when
used with the Fn key. The screen-control keys PgUp, PgDn,
Home, End are defined by your application and typically
