Making the NUMLOCK to default to ON in Windows 2000 involves a simple fix in an obscure place.
I have an HP PC running Win2000 Pro. The num lock state is off when it boots up. I'd like to change it so that num lock is on by default. Where would I change the setting?
This qualifies as one of Windows more obscure settings. It's not in Control Panel, and it's not in the registry ... it's in the Environment.
Here's how and where:
"OK" your way back out of those dialogs, and the next time you reboot your keyboard should default to having Num Lock ON.
