    Is BIOS or Windows 10 responsible for setting Num Lock at startup?


    When my computer starts/reboots, the Num Lock is set to off whilst I like it to be set to on. Does the solution lie in the BIOS or in Windows 10?

    Windows takes over this setting. In newer Insider builds this setting is set to ON at start. You'll have to wait that MS include such behavior in regular updates. Or switch to Insider builds (but at this moment stay with slow ring).
