Tired of having to enable numlock every single time your virtual machine starts up? There is a solution to have numlock automatically enable at startup.

  1. Hold the Windows Key then press “R” to bring up the Run dialog box.
  2. Type “regedit“, then press “Enter“.
  3. Navigate to the following location in the registry:
  • HKEY_USERS/.Default/Control Panel/Keyboard
  1. Change the value of InitialKeyboardIndicators
  • Set it to 2 to set NumLock ON

Numlock should now be automatically enabled upon Windows startup.
