    You can use the normal MS Windows calculator's BIN and DEC buttons for that operation.

    I'm not sure if this is done the same way in all calculators. I have a Casio fx-991ES and here's how I convert from base-10 to base-2:

    1. First, switch your current mode to Base-n mode
    2. Make sure that you're set to base-10 (dec).
    3. Input your numbers.
    4. Press any button that has an indication of the word binary (bin, base-2, etc..).

    It would be helpful if you told us what calculator do you use.

    And it would be helpful to speak to us in English. It's forgivable if English is not your first language, but chat language is just incomprehensible.

    Put the calculator into Base-N mode.

    It will default to decimal. Do your calculation and then change to binary using the [bin] key.

    Its all in the manual

    Now that the threads with your question have been merged, I see that it has already been answered.
