Windows 10: Enable NumLock on Fast-Startup
Enable NumLock on Fast-Startup
The issue I am currently having is enabling NumLock before the logon, I have modified the corresponding registry key (Find attached my screenshot below) and that works perfectly fine when restarting my PC, however I have fast-startup (Screenshot also below) enabled and if I shutdown my PC and then boot it up again, NumLock is disabled by default. I have made numerous searches and can't seem to find any information in regards to Fast-startup or any registry keys linked to it and I don't particularly want to disable Fast-startup. Just to clarify, NumLock is always enabled before logon when booting up my PC and Fast-startup is disabled, however with Fast-startup enabled, NumLock is only enabled when restarting my computer.
Does anyone have any information in relation to this or possibly a solution?
Thanks in advance!
Have you checked your BIOS settings?
Usually it's something that is configured in there
Yes, sorry I neglected to mention the BIOS is relatively limited and there doesn't appear to be any option related to NumLock.
This is the fix which just worked for me:
Num Lock - Enable or Disable on Sign-in Screen in Windows 10
• Turn off fast start-up (if not already off)
• Run REGEDIT and go to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Keyboard
• Change the value of InitialKeyboardIndicators to 2147483650
• Reboot & turn on fast start up (if you want it)
