I didn't mean the enter key on the number pad, I meant the enter
key on the main keyboard, but regardless, it was just a
suggestion, any key combination will do.

I thought nvda enter did somethingn already, or
am I getting my views confused? It's ben a very very long
day, and it's not yet over . Lol!

It really wouldn't be that difficult for the developers

this numlock add-on, perhaps I'll hack that to do this
myself. I'm an experienced programmer, but python is
not my language of choice, and NVDA specifically is not
a program to which I have familarized myself with it's
source code, so having samples of something to see how
it's done would make creating a different add-on to
toggle the nvda key into always on mode wouldn't be that
hard at that point, but this is something one of the
regular NVDA developers would have little trouble
completing. Perhaps an enhancement request should be
submitted, and someone could add it as time permits.

How would you lock it, however, without using
sticky keys in general? Using sticky keys, you can
lock it as you can any sticky key but my understanding
is that the desire is to have only that key be
NVDA, if you press the modifier twice, passes the
second command to Windows, so if you press insert
twice, you have pressed it once, as far as Windows is
concerned. If you press caps lock twice, you lock or
unlock caps lock because you have actually passed the
keystroke to Windows once. So some other means of
locking the key would be wanted because you wouldn't
want to lose that ability.

Locking the NVDA key is most certainly possible, it has
nothing to do
with whether it's a microsoft program or another one,
it's just a matter
of keyboard interception, which is something NVDA
