– Do you use putty?
– Do you use vim?
– Do you “have to” use windows at times?
Well this post is for you. You must have found yourself in an annoying issue when you cant use num pad in vim. Fortunately you can fix that:
Open Putty window and in the configuration, go to Terminal->Features and check "Disable application keypad mode". Save the settings.
Now restart that session you were working with and enjoy vim!
