What Are Tenkey Keyboards (Numbers Pads)?

Tenkey keyboards are keyboards used mainly to enter numbers. They consist only of the numpad part of the keyboard. They are a good options if you want to use some of the smaller keyboard form factors, but still want to have the numpad, or if you want to have the numpad placed separately from your keyboard, rather than being part of it.

Tenkey Keyboards are also known as Numeric Keypad, number pad, numpad or ten key.

Advantages Of Tenkey Keyboards

  • Since most laptop keyboards don’t come with number pad, you can buy one to compensate for that.
  • If your laptop is your main computer, you can connect the Tenkey to your dock, so that you have numpad only while are on your desk, and not have it while on the go when you need more portability.
  • Having both the Tenkey keyboards & your keyboard separated can be more convenient, since the mouse would be closer to your hands.
  • Entering numbers can be easier on Tenkey keyboards, since they come with additional keys, like tab, escape, backspace & more.
