fn + return = insert On small keyboards the missing Ins key is pressed (default).
fn + return = enter on numpad On small keyboards this simulates a key press of the enter key on the numeric keypad.
Fix numpad = key On large keyboards the = key on the numeric keypad is not supported by Windows, we make it work by simulating the = key of the normal keyboard.
