    Caps lock, num lock, scroll lock lights no longer function


    Hello! Since the most recent build of W-10 (9879), my caps lock, num lock, and scroll lock lights do not function on either computer on which I have W-10 installed (a desktop with a USB keyboard and a laptop with an integrated keyboard). The keys still work to correctly toggle the functionality, but the keyboard lights don't work. In case it matters, my keyboard's actual backlights and my mouse's internal light (not the laser, the internal LED) are working correctly, it's just the CL, NL, and SL indicators that don't function.

    Anyone have any ideas for fixing this?

    :)

    Have num lock turned off when computer boots

    The num lock was turned on with the latest unscheduled Windows 10 update. I was puzzled that my password didn't work until I noticed the light was
    on.

    How do I change the settings so the num lock, scroll lock, and caps lock settings are
    off on bootup? Also how do I permanently disable the useless num lock, scroll lock, and caps lock keys?

    Why after the new Windows 10 Update December 2017 Logitech 710 Plus Keyboard Num lock and Caps lock and Scroll lock lights don't work?

    I have the same issue, steelseries apex keyboard , num lock and scroll lock , caps lock led not working after the update 12/12/2017

    everything else is working fine, the keyboard still functions and the led`s work under bios so the keyboard is good, just no lights un windows 10 although a dialogue "cap shift is on" comes on in most cases

    I took a hint from another forum and the lights actually work on Safe Mode.

    That's strange. *Huh

    I checked my keyboard drivers in 8.1 and 10 thinking that may be the difference. They are indeed the same MS generic drivers, except in 10 the details are not posted. Weird.

    Windows 8.1

    Here's something interesting, on a newly clean installed 9879, I deleted the native keyboard driver (which rendered my keyboard useless) and restarted the PC hoping the it will detect my USB keyboard and install the necessary driver by itself. It did detect my keyboard and automatically installed the driver but now I got a number pad light WORKING but won't go off no matter how I pound the num lock key. And what's even interesting is that I got a Microsoft keyboard that doesn't work harmoniously with Microsoft OS. *Smile

    Exact keyboard doing the same thing as you! Now that's funny!

    Maybe next week when they release the "slow" update there will be something to fix this.

    Greetings from Holly Jerusalem
    When I installed build 9879 and faced that problem,I ran to computer shop and bought new KEYBOARD but the same problem still here.
    However,to work around after days of googling till we get fixes:
    1 - NUM LOCK: disable fast startup in Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options\System Settings
    2 - CAPS LOCK: change press the SHIFT key radio button in the advanced key settings options in Control Panel\Clock, Language, and Region\Language\Advanced settings

    Please note that work without lights,don't forget to restart
    I hope that will help

    Thanks, aksalaymeh. *Smile

    Interesting. Not sure if I want to give up fast startup for some lights when the keys work.

    Hi

    I looked but I can't find a Shift Key Radio Button anyplace, nor Advanced Key Settings, when I run a search it just tells me there is no such thing.

    I did learn that I can set it so that it plays a tone whenever I push the Cap Lock Key, I never knew that before.
