Windows 10 NUM LOCK

Hi, Hope I came to the right place.
In 'windows 10' You have a option under power plan to select quick start , It works very well but,num lock key will not come on when pc starts up. Is there a way round this?
Tried usual fixes ie 'HOTKEY LOCAL MACHINE USERS' etc, but I can't get it to work.

Any help would be appreciated.

You have to set it in the default user's registry settings.

Key: HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Keyboard
String: InitialKeyboardIndicators
Value: 2147483650

This will set it for the lock screen, not sure if once you log in if your own user registry then overrides it or not, do some testing and find out :)
