    Numbers lock off when restarting


    After upgrading my Windows 8.1 system to to Windows10 , when I restart or turn on my computer the numbers lock key is not turned on. This may sound trivial, but if I forget about it, my passwords won't work because many of the passwords contain numbers. Is there a way for me to keep the numbers lock key on when my computer restarts?
    Thanks,
    Mary

    I haven't found a way yet. I just press the Num Lock key to take me to the password/PIN screen, pretty much solved my problem.

    Doesn't happen on the desktop computer I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10, just on the laptop I upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10.

    i'm sure there is a program for this, but have you by chance checked your bios? usually that sort of setting is set within the bios on boot.

    Check in your BIOS for the num lock setting... like @vladthedog said.

    If the num lock was already enabled in the bios, then it should still be enabled, Windows 10 shouldn`t have changed that, but it won`t hurt to check.

    depends on your model/brand of computer, but oftentimes when you first turn it on, it will tell you to "press XXX to enter setup/bios" or something like that.

    Could you tell us the make and model of your laptop, Advanced settings are disabled in most of the laptops.
