On the Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad, it might happen that the numeric keypad (numpad) doesn't work.
Ensure clear key = is set in the user interface.
Press the clear or key, that's the key below F16, and the numneric keypad will work again.
The clear key acts like the Num Lock key on Windows keyboards.

Surprise, all small keyboards have a hardware bug when using the fn key.
So far no one has discovered it since the fn key was only used together with the F-Keys.
Thanks to the new modifier mapping feature we know the bug exists.
Apple, do you hear us? Fix your key multiplexer! This bug exists in any small Apple keyboard since 2007.
List of key presses which do not work
- fn + left control + 5
- fn + left shift + T
- fn + left option + G
- fn + left command + B, pressing B twice drops+reconnects Bluetooth on the older keyboards.
- fn + right option + 5, T, G, B
- fn + caps lock + 5, T, G, B
If any of these combinations are pressed the keyboard raw data reports 6 overrun errors. Pressing an additional key doesn't help either.
Cases 1. - 4. have been fixed with version 126.96.36.199.
Cases 5.+ 6. cannot be fixed as there is no way to determine which key was pressed.
We have a hand full reports of constant Windows 11 Magic Utilities app crashes for version 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206.

Currently, we do not know why this is the case nor can we reproduce this issue on our Windows 11 test computers.
