All of the following cheats require you to hold ⇧ Shift down and then press the NUM - key, then let go and type the appropriate cheat code (capitalization doesn't matter). Nothing is displayed while you are typing, however the key strokes are being recorded and a quick confirmation might shortly flash on the screen upon successful entry.
