Windows 10 roll out tips

On January 9, 2017, in news, by susan

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]
