Enable Number Keypad in remote sessions
Thank you for reporting the issue with the physical numpad not working properly. We are looking into it.
Regardless of Numlock being on or off, the numpad (1-9) work only as directional arrows.
When connecting to an RDP session, the num lock is disabled in Windows 8.1. This makes things like Thin Clients based on Windows 8.1 Industry difficult for users to log into properly as they expect the number pad to work without having to turn on Num Lock.

My problem is that the physical number keypad is not working properly in the remote session. Regardless of the status of the Num Lock toggle key, the number keypad operates as if it is off. Perhaps this the OP is referring to the virtual on-screen number keypad as I've only noticed this issue since updating to verion 10.1.874.0.
yes please, I do data entry and what I earn is based on how fast I process the data and I use the numpad heavily and now having to plug via the keyboard's top row is tedious.
