------------------------ MS-DOS v6.22 Help: NumLock ------------------------
<Examples>                                                         <Index>


Specifies whether the NUM LOCK key is set to ON or OFF when your computer
starts. You can use this command only in your CONFIG.SYS file.




    If set to ON, turns on the NUM LOCK key when MS-DOS displays the startup
    menu. If set to OFF, turns NUM LOCK off.

Related Commands

The NUMLOCK command is one of six special CONFIG.SYS commands for defining
startup menus and multiple configurations. The other commands are:

*  The <MENUCOLOR> command, which defines the color of the menu's text and
   screen background.

*  The <MENUITEM> command, which defines an item on the menu.

*  The <MENUDEFAULT> command, which specifies the default menu item.

*  The <SUBMENU> command, which defines a submenu.

*  The <INCLUDE> command, which includes the contents of one configuration
   block in another. This command cannot be included in a menu block.

For an overview of the procedure for defining multiple configurations, see
the topic <Commands for Defining Multiple Configurations>



                             NUMLOCK -- Example

To ensure that NUM LOCK is always ON when the startup menu appears, include
the following command in the [MENU] block.

For example, the following menu block defines three menu items, sets the
default item to "full_config," and sets NUM LOCK to ON:

    menuitem=base_config,Base configuration only
    menuitem=full_config,Normal configuration
    menuitem=network,Normal configuration with network
