    Numlock defaults to off


    Running new Windows 10 Home 64 bit PC for but a few days I have been irritated that as it has booted I always have to switch numlock on. 100% of boot occasions, numlock is turned off. Can anyone tell me where I can configure the machine to stop it doing this?

    :)

    pin number rejected after latest update

    Thank you. Setting up a new pin was successful but I realized it was a 2 part problem.

    After resetting PIN, I could select PIN as login option but keyboard number pad did not respond. I noticed NumLock was OFF.

    To fix this, I went into to registry and told it yet again to make NumLock ON my default keyboard setting on boot up.

    When I installed Windows 10 (over Window 8) NumLock defaulted to OFF.

    I changed it in the registry and NumLock stayed defaulting to ON.

    However, after this update, it was back again to NumLock OFF. This needs to be addressed by developers.

  8. Numlock defaults to off

    I just checked. Numlock is on through a restart, but from a cold boot, Numlock is *not* on by default.
    IMO, not a huge deal, but there it is...Numlock defaults to off :)
    I did the reg. fix you posted earlier, BTW...

    This solution below works from a cold boot. I've used it on a large number of PCs and always works. I've used it for devices at work, home and for friends.

    Num Lock key on at boot

    Sometimes it is not necessary to untick (disable) fast start-up. It just appears to make this solution more universal (although I don't know why)

    80000002 can also work in place of 2147483650 as it is the hexadecimal equivalent.

    This issue reappeared after the Anniversary Update and the fix at Post 8 worked.
