    Question How to make blank folder names on laptops with no Numpad?

    How to have blank folder names in Windows on laptop with no Numpad?

    On desktop I know that to create blank folder names, you have to press Alt+0160 using numpad keys.

    But most Laptops don't have numpad keys - hence asking.

    If you enable the num pad, you can do the same. Just make sure you disable it once you are done.

    To enable numpad you should be able to click the Shift+Num Lock keys to enable/disable Allows you to use numbers for the letter keys. Some use the FN+Num lk key combo to enable/disable.
    You'll find that the numpad keys are shared with the numbers 7, 8, 9, and the letters U, I, O, J, K, L and M.

    Haven't tested since I have a Toshiba that does have the numpad, googled and this is what I found. Hope it helps

    Woot! L.W, it worked ! I pressed "fn+num lk", and then pressed MJOM keys to get 0160 numeric. Voila I had a name-less folder on my laptop! Thanks a ton!
