Uninstalling and reinstalling the driver software did not work. Number-lock alternates between the numeric keys and the Ins-Del functions, much like a laptop. I’m quite accustomed to “clicky” keyboards the Logitech G15 was my previous keyboard of choice and the Zboard MERC’s keys are decidedly softer than what I’m used to.

Hit enter, then OK ideaon open windows. How satisfied are you with this response?
