Move laser with keyboard (laptop)

I have seen several posts stating that you can use the number keypad to position the laser. My problem is that my computer is a laptop and doesn’t have a number keypad. Any ideas of a workaround?

It’s not exactly the same but you can use these alternate keys to also move the laser head:

Left - ctrl+alt+[
Right - ctrl+alt+]
Down - ctrl+shift+[
Up - ctrl+shift+]

That definitely helps. Anything for the Z axis?

I’m not aware of any shortcuts for Z axis.

If you’re not opposed to a bit more clutter, an external USB or wireless numeric pad works fine, too.
