Windows 10 Automatically installed the build that came out about 10 December. When I did the install, the NUM LOCK refuses to work on the right hand keypad.
I searched for the registry edit and all I find is this fix https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows10/comments/3gjcxd/numlock_disabled_after_booting_up_windows_10/. The thing is, when I get to Keyboard, I've no strings to edit. I thought, "hey, permissions are an issue". But I give all the required permissions. I've disabled the FastStartUp / Boot and did a restart.
I'm willing to build DWord strings but I'm really rusty. I roll the system back to about about 2 December, and all is well. What the heck changed?
I'm in a Dell Studio XPS 9100. I thought "hey, let me get the driver updates for windows 10 and the keyboard" Dell forced me into the downloads for its backup (DSD I believe--hate that) and the system update check. In truth, I'm puzzled as to why my XPS9100 is supposedly a 64-bit system and all I get are 32-bit updates as well.
I know, lots of stuff going on. Anyhow, I'm stuck. I am deferring any upgrades where I can. I created a manual restore point so I can dump out anything that's forced on me and go back to where the darn keyboard works.
Any ideas? I'm out of them. I'm the single user and the ADMIN.
I've uploaded a screen print of the registry
