Alt Code symbols on Laptop keyboard
Note that this guide is for laptops, because usually they don't have a distinct Num Pad. If you're running a personal computer - read PC alt codes.
Laptops ("notebooks") have a Function key ("FN"). It usually has a blue color. Find it cause we may need to use it later.
Find Alt code.
Numeric Alt codes for symbols are listed in Alt codes list. Check for Alt code of symbol you want to input.
Enable Num Lk.
You may need to simultaneously press ["FN" and "Scr Lk"] keys. That's the combination for "Num Lock" on some laptops. Look at the picture - the "Num Lk"/"Scr Lk" button is highlighted there.
Hold down "Alt" key.
Some laptops require you to hold both "Alt" and "FN" keys.
Input Alt code of symbol on Keypad.
Do this while holding "Alt" button pressed. Type Alt code on your laptop's numeric keypad. It's highlighted on the picture.
Release all the keys.
After you release all the keys alt symbol should be entered. If all this stuff didn't work - check if you have really enabled the "Num Lock" first. Remember that green indicator should shine near the lock symbol on your laptop's keyboard. If that wasn't the case - try simultaneously holding "FN" and "Alt" keys instead of just "Alt". That just might work.
Certain laptop keys can act as numeric keypad. Look at photo to see what keys I'm talking about. I highlighted ones that create numeric part of keypad. You can see numbers on them. If you enable "NumLk", those keys will act as keypad keys when you press the "FN" button.
Keypad keys are "7", "8", "9", "u", "i", "o", "j", "k", "l" and "m" buttons. If on your laptop you can't find keys with tiny numbers - try them.
For those of you that don't have Key Pad, try [FN] + [F11] it may open a calculator-like keypad.
No Num Lock
If you're definitely sure that you are using a laptop (not a Macbook!) and you are sure you don't have a NumLk - one user told that next thing may work:
If you don't have both Num Lock or ScrLock hold the FN button down then Alt so you're holding both down then enter your alt code.
