Hello, when employees are trying to login to the network, they always have problems entering their password because the num lock key on the keyboard is disabled. is there a way to enable the num lock key through a group policy object?

    thank you for your response, I was thinking more like enabling this feature in a gpo, but if this works then great. only one question, if come computers have the num lock enabled when turned on, will the script disable it?

    Most likely the gpo will overide it, especially if the gpo is enforced.
