Putty doesn’t recognize numeric keypad

I love Putty , its my go-to ssh client emulator on Windows, recently I got this problem that it would not accept my keyboard’s numeric keypad.  I have a pretty cheap remote keyboard, but it works nicely so why is Putty pestering me ?

Turns out Putty has a special Application Keypad mode, in which the keyboard can send special sequences to a server; I just want my numeric part of the keyboard for its numeric capabilities; there is a setting which helps here, and I only discovered this after a few weeks … don’t be like me google the solution;

 

Totally l33t !
