So to remind myself of the next time I’m rolling out Windows 10… here are some tips to fix annoyances:

Can’t enable numlock?

Win10:

  • Change the value of …ControlPanel/Keyboard/InitialKeyboardIndicators to 2147483650 for ALL USERS not only for .Default (my current user was 2).
  • Then SHUTDOWN computer.
  • Turn on computer and wait for login screen (NumLock is still off).
  • Enable NUMLOCK
  • SHUTDOWN computer.
  • Turn on computer.

NumLock disabled after booting up Windows 10? from Windows10

Merely enabling it in the bios did NOTHING.  I had to do this funky trick of shutting down and registry edits to get it to ‘take’.

Windows 10 1607 [Anniversary release]
