    Go into Settings and accounts, then switch to a Local account.

    For the Num Lock question.
    I have always found that I only have to press the Num Lock button and shut down immediately.
    When you start up again, Num Lock will be on.




    You could even do a restart, as long as you don't have "Turn on fast start-up (recommended)" selected in your Power Options.

    I found a solution online. It's a script that runs under AutoHotKey.
    I already had the latter ... so adding the author's script code was easy. Now the Num Lock is always on. If I press the Num Lock key to turn it off ... it turns right back on again.

    ; NumLock Enforcer - Monitors the Num Lock key ... turns it back on after someone turns it off

    ;
    ; #SingleInstance force
    ; ;#NoTrayIcon ; UNCOMMENT THIS LINE IF YOU NEED A TRAY ICON
    ; #InstallKeybdHook
    ; #Persistent

    ;Menu, tray, Icon, %A_WinDir%\System32\shell32.dll, 105
    appname=NumLock Enforcer
    SetTimer, EnforceNumLock, 500
    return

    EnforceNumLock:
    NumLockStatus := GetKeyState("Numlock", "T")
    IfEqual, NumLockStatus, 0
    {
    SetNumLockState, On
    ;TrayTip,%appname%,NumLock Status = On,,1 ; UNCOMMENT THIS LINE IF YOU WANT SOME KIND OF FEEDBACK
    }
    return

    ; Win+p pauses the script,just in case you need the NumLock.
