How to enable the NUM LOCK key for the logon screen

The status of the NUM LOCK key is specific for each user, and it is disabled by default. If you want the NUM LOCK key enabled for use before a user presses CTRL+ALT+DEL to log on (the logon desktop), you need to edit the registry.

To enable NUM LOCK for the Logon desktop (shown when no user is logged on), use the steps below:

  • Click Start, Run and type regedit.exe
  • Navigate to the following location:

HKEY_USERS\.Default\Control Panel\Keyboard

  • Double-click the value InitialKeyboardIndicators
  • Set the value-data from 0 to 2
  • Close Regedit

To undo the above, change the InitialKeyboardIndicators value back to 0

Automate the above task using these REG files
