Numeric keypad's Enter key unresponsive


  • You may find the numeric keypad’s Enter key unresponsive when in ‘Remote control’.

    This Enter key uses a different keycode (E0_1C) than the keyboard’s main Enter key (00_1C).

    As a workaround change/add a registry key that remaps the numeric Enter keycode to that of the main Enter keycode.

    Using Notepad create a ScancodeMap.reg file with the following contents:

    = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout]
    "Scancode Map"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,02,00,00,00,1c,00,1c,e0,00,00,00,00
    = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

    Double-click the saved file to add its contents to the Registry then restart the computer.

    To reverse the previous change use Notepad to create a RemoveScancodeMap.reg file with the following contents:

    = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout]
    "Scancode Map"=-
    = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

    Double-click the saved file to add its contents to the Registry then restart the computer.
