Step 1. Finding the Nums Lock Key
Finding that Num Lock Key on your keyboard is really the hardest part of creating a lenny face!
Why is the Num Lock Key so important?
The Num Lock key enables and disables the numeric key pad on your keyboard. You need this feature enabled so you can create some
of the facial features of your Lenny face.
Where is the Num Lock key?
On a standard keyboard the Num lock is located on the numeric keypad. I have highlighted the key in green in the image below
If you have a numeric keyboard on your laptop then the Num lock will be located in that area. But today most laptops don’t have an easy to see numeric pad.
Apple Mac number pad only functions as a number pad so it does not have a num lock key. Skip to the how to create lenny face on a Mac Below
