Solved How to permanently enable Numlock


Hey.
Here you can find a way that i use at my system , to permanently enable Numlock.
We can put the file/s at the path we want.

1) Firstly, we need one of these 2 files. One its at ps.1 and the other is the .ps1 file compiled to .exe.
2) Next we need to run one of these at a) system Logon (includes Restart) and b) system sleep and hibernation.
To do that we need to create 2 tasks at task scheduler. One for a) one for b)
3) Creating the task for Logon :

Trigger:
We set the trigger at "when logging in any user"

Settings:

Thats it for Logon and Restart.👈
For Sleep and Hibernation , here is the way.



Notes:
a)
1) To test if it works while you use the system :
-open notepad
-enable numlock by pressing its key and ensure that numlock is Enabled
-right click and choose Run at task at Task Scheduler
-go back to notepad and check that you can type numbers

2) To test if it works at Restart , Sleep , Hibernation :
-open notepad
-enable numlock by pressing its key and ensure that numlock is Enabled
-Restart or Sleep or Hibernate the system
-ensure that you can type numbers

b)
-.Ps1 file will produce a flash window when running
-.Exe file will be completely hidden , no windows of flashes. Thats better.

c) With the same procedure we could have always enabled the NumLock
The only changes are the file/s.

I had tested at my system and it works 100% OK.


Cheers.

No, his answers show that he wants to turn it on or off.


All the best,

I assumed he wanted the key killed so he doesn’t accidently turn it off. Regardless if he want’s it killed or not, I know what his objective is.
I don’t have a motherboard that does not enable num lock on boot. So If I was to kill the key, my num lock stays on.


Hang on though. If the number lock is enabled, the arrows don’t operate, the numbers do. Your comment is adverse to the request.
So you just want to kill that key altogether and hope that the settings remember that you want the number lock enabled at log-on?

You have right. English isnt my native language and i lost in translation. I will correct that.
So i want NumLock enabled by default after Restart , sleep or hibernation.
