T60: How to type numpad plus ("+")?

Is there any way to type a "numpad plus" ("+") character on a Thinkpad T60, without turning on NumLock or using an external keyboard/numpad?

 

What I want to do is use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-+ for "resize all columns" in Windows Explorer.  I don't want to have to turn on Numpad (and then turn it back off afterwards), though.  The keyboard shortcut only works with the numpad plus ("+") key, not the plus key next to the backspace key.

 

Thanks!

or alternatively, use Ctrl + mouse wheel scroll, this is will also do the exact operation.

 lead_org, do you mean that Ctrl+mouseWheel should perform an "autosize all columns" in Windows Explorer?  I tried it, but that doesn't seem to work for me (in Windows XP).  (Thanks for the suggestion, though!)

sorry it just increases or decreases the font/window size to a level that you desire.
