Just like Android, Windows 10 too allows you to sign in to your computer using just a numeric pin instead of a password. However, in order to do so, you have to enable Num Lock every time you boot.
While this may not be a problem for a lot of people, it is still a nuisance you can do away with by automating the process. To automate this process by enabling Num Lock by default, follow these simple steps:
In the Start Menu, type “regedit” and press enter.
When the “Registry Editor” window open, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Control Panel \ Keyboard
Change the “InitialKeyboardIndicators” value to 2.
Expand the “HKEY_USERS” folder.
Repeat the same process for all the folders inside this folder.
Once done, close the “Registry Editor”.
Open “Control Panel” and click on “Hardware And Sound”.
Select “Power Options” and click on “Choose what the power buttons do”.
Click on the “Change settings that are currently unavailable” option.
Scroll down to “Shutdown Settings” and uncheck the “Turn on fast startup (Recommended)” option.
Click on “Save Changes” to complete the process.
With these easy steps, you will make sure that whenever you boot your computer, the Num Lock will be switched on by default. This way you can go straight to entering your Pin Code to unlock your device.
