Hey all,

The NUMLOCK key is usually off before the user has logged into the computer, this can cause problem for people NUMLOCK key before typing their password.

to change the default state of the numlock key, open regedit and change:


HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Keyboard\

Key InitialKeyboardIndicators

[Value: 0 = NUMLOCK off, 2 = NUMLOCK on]


You can also download the zip file with the two registry keys included.

The registry keys contain this info:

NumLock On.reg:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Keyboard]
"InitialKeyboardIndicators"="2"

NumLock Off.reg
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Keyboard]
"InitialKeyboardIndicators"="0"

I suppose everybody knows what to do when editing registry... :D
