How do I put NUM LOCK on permanently?


Everytime I log off, the Num Lock key goes off too. How do I get the Num Lock key to stay depressed permanently? Is there an XP setting?

Try this - search the registry (regedit) for any occurance of
InitialKeyboardIndicators and any you find that are set to 0 (zero) change them to 2.

Some may be set to non numeric values. Leave those alone.

XP does no set the numlock on even if it is set in bios. Is this a true statement?
Come to think of it - that is correct. It was something that puzzled me (briefly) some time ago, but, being lefthanded, I never use the number keypad so not a problem.

My System
My WinXP Pro system returns to the numlock state it is in when I shut it down. Numlock On > Numlock On and Numlock Off > Numlock Off.
Is it possibly the Logitech Software that does this?

Thanks for the replies. I have found that there are 2 Registry values which need changing from 0 to 2.
Found the answer in previous posts.

Searched under Num Lock.

Thanks
