Numpad extensions-shortcuts not working


Description of the issue:
a. not able to add numpad-numbers as extension shortcuts. any other letter and numbers on the keyboard works, but not the numpad ones. since so many letters are already taken by chromium/brave as defaults that sadly cannot be overridden this leaves us users with very few neat/easy to remember available options. using the numpad keys for shortcuts would be great, but it does not work. it’s not registered at all

How can this issue be reproduced?
a. navigate to chrome://extensions/shortcuts
select one of the available “type a shortcut” boxes and hit ctrl or alt + any of the numpad numbers. nothing happens. no error, not keybind. nothing. it ignores the input entirely

Expected result:
a. expecting the shortcut to be registered so i can hit the key combo ctrl+numpad-number-1 to trigger an extention shortcut. even more preferable would be to not have to hold either ctrl nor alt keys, but simply use the numpad keys for one hand efficiency. so if you can lessen that restriction a little as well, that would be really nice.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
a. Version 1.5.115 Chromium: 80.0.3987.149 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
a. im using a lenovo legion laptop with numpad, if that helps. tried both with and without numlock. windows 10 pro 1909/18363.752. that’s it i think. thank you
