    I bought this used ThinkPad T41 to run my CNC and although it does the job nicely I never seen a keyboard like that and I just wonder what these strange keys are and how you activate them

    Especially the top keys, as per attached pics, where the numbers 1 to 0 are there are some keys with 4 symbols per key

    Anyone knows what kind keyboard is this and how you activate the extra symbols?

    I don’t refer to the function keys at the top of the keyboard, those are understood. I refer to the ten number keys 1 to 0 just below the Fn keys. Those keys have 3 to 4 symbols each which I have never seen before

    They look like a scientific symbols set.
    Might try opening notepad and hold ctrl while
    typing them and see what the output is.
    Looks like your right alt key is an alt car(alt character)
    key too.
    Check that.

    Yes some kind scientific symbols

    Yes the right ALT key says Altcar but does nothing when I press it. I have tried all combos with Notepad open but I get nothing

    Thought that someone might have used a similar keyboard to give me some info
