Force Caps Lock, Num Lock and Scroll Lock Keys Behavior Using Windows Registry

Its a very common problem among Windows users. Whenever Windows starts, it automatically turns "CapsLock", "NumLock" or "ScrollLock" keys On at login screen even if you turned the keys off before the login or boot screen.

If you want to permanently change their behavior, then you can use following steps to do so:

1. Type regedit in RUN dialog box and press Enter. It'll open Registry Editor.

2. Now go to following key:

To change the behavior for currently logged in user:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Keyboard

To change the behavior for all users:
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Keyboard

3. Now in right-side pane, change value of "InitialKeyboardIndicators" string value to any of following:

0 - Turn all indicators Off (NumLock, CapsLock, ScrollLock)
1 - Turn CapsLock On
2 - Turn NumLock On
3 - Turn CapsLock and NumLock On
4 - Turn ScrollLock On
5 - Turn CapsLock and ScrollLock On
6 - Turn NumLock and ScrollLock On
7 - Turn all indicators On (NumLock, CapsLock, ScrollLock)

4. That's it. Exit registry editor and restart your system to take effect.
