I try to assign shortcuts which includes numpad number keys e.g. Ctrl.+alt+5.

But the numberkeys of numpad won't work only the numberkeys over the qwert keyd

I found out that this seem to be an old bug.

I found this workaround:


If I do this the shortcuts are working with the numpad keys too. But now I can't type number with this key in textfields and so on.

How can I make shortcuts so that the numpad numberkeys still work as expected?

  • If you assign shortcuts to the keypad, then you won't be able to use the numbers on the keypad. To use them, just add a second key for your shortcut. E.G: To open my email, I've used ALT+6. So for you, use ALT or CTRL or any other with the number previously used. – Steam gamer Jun 7 '15 at 14:37
  • You are right. I ve done that but did not mentioned that in my post. I have updated that. – avb Jun 7 '15 at 15:33
