    Thanks for this, will try it out. I can't see why they don't make Windows remember the state of numlock.

    If it is Fast Startup at fault, then you could do this below to sort it.

    1) Turn off Fast Startup.

    2) Enable Num Lock at startup.

    3) Restart the computer to lock it in.

    4) You can turn Fast Startup back on again if you like, and have Num Lock stay enabled at startup.
    Not sure if this method works either,
    since numlock needs to be activated while fast startup is enabled, not disabled like you suggested.

    Turning off fast startup and numlock on, does not associate numlock on with fast startup..so no point doing this..

    Only when fast startup is on and numlock is on, then you immediately shutdown pc and turn it on, that it saves numlock on to fast startup state..
    I have tried this method already from this article below, but it still is randomly turning off numlock, so this method is not working permanently either..

    Can you test your method a number times and tell me if it works or not?
    Cos I don't think it will work either..since the method I mention in the article was suppose to save numlock state to fast startup
    but it does not work permanently either..and will randomly turn off numlock state..

    Did you give what I posted a try though?

    The tutorial works just fine for me. It does get reset after a new Windows 10 build update, and has to be reapplied afterwards.

    So numlock always on for you?

    Which method did you used?

    It's always on for the Sign-in screen.

    I used the enable option in the tutorial on the first page here.

    you mean this?
    Enable_Num_Lock_on_Sign-in_screen.reg

    Yeah that is not gonna work for me, cos I have edit all entries in my regedit as suggested by the howtogeek article..

    Also tried the fast startup trick in that article..

    Seems like only way is to disabled fast startup permanently..

    I will test your method and see if that works or not.

    okay I think best solution for this problem is to enable pin login..

    this will allow numbers no matter what the numlock state

    That is not true for my machine.

    Same for mine when using the Number Pad/10-key Pad. I find the Registry change works fine but it only saves the state of the NumLock at time of shutdown or reboot, if On it will return as On, if Off it returns as Off. None of this affects the row of numbers on the keyboard itself, evidenced by use of Notebooks without the Number Pad. As for the PIN entry instead of a password, the state of the NumLock key is important.

    Yeah it does not look like any solution keeps numlock on permanently.

    It all depends on numlock state at shutdown.
    So you need to make sure numlock is on, when you shutdown.

    Someone need to report this problem to Microsoft .
