Windows 10: Pin Keypad Gone

    Pin Keypad Gone


    I use the 4 digit PIN login for Win 10. In the past, I would get the small 10 digit number keypad when I touched the PIN input box on the logon screen. Lately, on all my devices, the small keypad has been replaced by the full on screen keyboard when I touch the PIN input box on the logon screen. I've found a number of folks with the same issue, but no resolution.

    Very annoying.

    Anyone know how to get back to the small keypad?

    Does it not show you login options just below were you type in the password ?

    The 10-key Key pad is controlled by Win10 regardless of the BIOS setting.

    There has been posted a number of places where editing a Registry item can change its performance but working in the Registry is not for the faint-of-heart as one mistake will keep Windows from booting up.

    I found the change would retain the status of the key pad when shut down, i.e. if NumLock is On at shutdown it will be on at startup. If Off it will be off.
    Change the Default NumLock State at Registry Guide for Windows

    Sorry, that didn't answer about the onscreen key pad.
