This isn't really an Apple question. Any fix will done through the Windows OS. I suggest a migration to Super User. –  Nathan Greenstein Jan 7 '11 at 0:43
    
Yes, good for press the "clear" key for Operate the Numberic Keypad, but can use after the Computer start-up only. After I try to Open the another Apps cannot operate the "Clear" key anymore. How can I set-up ? –  user74373 Mar 29 at 15:58

Hah! I actually use a mac keyboard as the normal keyboard on my windows boxes. I like the laptop-feel and the aluminium.

This is easy to fix.

Push "Clear".

The "Clear" key on the numberpad gets mapped to the "NumLock" key on windows.

If you want to fix the swapping of the alt and "Command" keys, KeyTweak works well.
It can also let you set the additional F-keys (e.g. F13-F19, which are not real F-keys) to be whatever you want. I have them mapped as media keys (next-track, pause, etc...)

Thanks. –  itsaboutcode Jan 7 '11 at 20:41

Press and hold "clear" key for three seconds. It will work as NUMLOCK in windows. You can shift to numerics and the "<-- -->" kind of finctions. Hope it will help.
