Numlock question


In the beginning......
Political User
Is there any option in xp pro to prevent num-lock from being turned off, ie having to press the key a few times to get it to change state?

It can get quite anoying if you go to hit the number 7 and hit the numlock key as well whilst entering lots of numbers.

I remember there was an accesability option to do something similar in windows 9x.

To have numlock turned on for each user:

Go to start -> Run and type -> Regedit

Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Keyboard\InitialKeyboardIndicators

Change the value from 0 to 2

Turn Numlock on manually

Log off and back on again.

For all users, make the same change to:
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Keyboard\InitialKeyboardIndicators


Hope this helps!

Good luck.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
