    I tried that site a few days age, my computer has been cleaned by Windows Defender, the first to report that I was infected with Malware, also by Malwarebites, Spy Bot , and a few more that monitor my computer, thanks for trying, but beware.

    Like many others, I've had problems configuring a new PC to keep NumLock on. My problem, however, is not having it on for the login screen: that part's fine. Instead, NumLock switches off (!) as soon as any user logs in. The Administrator account is password-protected, but the other two local accounts just log in with a click (no password).

    I tried all the given solutions (changing registry keys and disabling fastboot) and nothing would stick until I tried one simple thing. I logged into each account, immediately pressed NumLock to turn it on, then immediately restarted the computer. After doing this once for each account, NumLock appears to stay on after logging in. I've tried logging into each account repeatedly and so far all is good.

    Incidentally, the PC BIOS has a NumLock on/off setting. This trick works regardless of how that is set (in fact, it's now off in the BIOS, but that doesn't seem to matter).

    It's possible that NumLock status is somehow stored as part of the user profile. In fact, an earlier post links to a fairly technical article (Why does my Numlock key keep resetting?) which says "Numlock needs to be controlled on a per user, per profile basis."

    Whether my solution by itself is the correct one, or whether the registry hacks and fastboot disabling are required along with what I've described, I won't hazard a guess. But try it if nothing else works.

    Number Lock


    Long time since the last post on this subject and the problem seeemed to be solved with registry change (initialkeyboardindicators to 2) and turn off fast startup in power settings . However I have had to reinstall windows completely with version 1607 and now that fix does not work . Number lock is now off again at every startup . Does anyone know if this has a fix or are us normal users to be ignored as usual ?

    A temporary fix: when on your login screen turn on num-lock and restart.

    fyi; Win10 1703 has fixed the problem with no user intervention needed.

    I've found that the 'fix' saves the current state of the NumLock, i.e. if On at shutdown/reboot it should be On when back up and running. If the NumLock is Off when shutting down it should still be Off when next starting.

    My biggest gripe: Win10 turns Off the NumLock light on Notebooks, okay on Desktop keyboards, like to use the PIN for Logon so the light is an important cue.

    I am running 1709 and it still doesn't work! Has anyone found an actual fix that works on all platforms?

    Someone else will have to chime in. I don't have this issue any more on the more than dozen 1709 computers that I support and almost all use a PIN to log in.

    When my computer wakes up, the number keys work for the log on pin, but then are turned off sometime during reopening Windows.
