    Num Lock on at Bootup - Win 10

    How do I get the Num Lock turned on at Bootup. When I restart the computer, it stays on but when I turn the computer off the Num Lock is off. It was on when I powered off

    Windows 10: Numbers Key Shuts Off

    I have a Dell Inspirion Desktop - with Windows 7 the 'Num Lock' always stayed on. In Windows 10, when I open the PC I can see the 'Num Lock' is on - it is when the boot is finished and the Windows 10 picture screen comes on, I can see the 'Num Lock' go
    off. When I hit it back on, I get the windows 10 sign on and the 'Num Lock' stays on for my whole session. I sign off and when I come back on later I go thru the same routine again - just thought it was strange and was wondering if anyone else had the same
    problem.

    I don't have another keyboard to try, and an on-line keyboard will have proved nothing, since I had to put on the 'Num Lock' in order to get into the session - once it is on, it stays on until I shut down. And again when I press the start key on the tower,
    I can see the 'Num Lock' is on - as soon as the W10 picture comes on the screen, it goes off.

    I am use to it now, but strange.

    I would rather they work on fixing the hyperlink problem, that is a real pain.

  7. I've tried all things here but both my wife's computer and mine started doing this when we upgraded to Windows 10. Mine actually from when I bought my computer 2 weeks ago and it came with Windows 8.1. Still requires resetting after its turned off.

    if you have password shutdown and open your computer. when u came at login screen restart the computer while num-lock on.

    note: this is a temporary solution. I tried all registry and fastboot etc. tricks but none of them worked

    I have tried all the suggestions on this thread and none work (bios already set to on , reg keys all tried ) . This problem did not exist on 10 until I recently reinstalled (clean install) . So come on why is this happening and more important what is the correct and permanent fix ?*Sad
     
  10. I had this issue before installing Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center for my Microsoft keyboard. Perhaps y'all need to install a keyboard utility/driver?

    Thank you all for the suggestions , however this problem is not resolved by any of the fixes mentioned on here . I have just moved onto a new HP desktop with the latest version of Windows and number lock turns off at shutdown . The solution is not in the registry nor is it in the BIOS nor is it in turning off fast start , all those have made no difference . It seems to me that the operating system must be the culprit because start up is is switching off a setting that is controlled in BIOS , so does anyone know how I can escalate this problem so that it can be fixed ( I know that you can simply switch num lock on or off but that is not the point , I think it must be wrong that windows resets a BIOS setting because after all how do we know what else windows might be doing that it should no)
    Advice welcome I wish to escalate this .
