The Setup of the Software utility also adds the software to Windows Startup so that whatever keys you check will be on and corresponding LED on Keyboard will be lit (apart from the Insert Key which does not have an LED on the Keyboard). With Windows 7 onwards computers such as Windows 8, any application can be pinned to the Taskbar. In case you do have a keyboard on which either of the Num Lock, Caps Lock, Scroll Lock or Insert Key does not work, this software can be used as an alternative.
