    remapping caps lock

    I am getting more and more frustrated by the number of times my finger catches the caps lock when typing

    I would like to know how to make the caps lock in to a double click to deal with this issue I am sure it is likely to be a simple fix so please someone just explain a method i will be really grateful.

    Caps lock

    Hi Mark,

    The option to be notified that the Caps Lock is on the moment you start typing is not available. However, you can enable and increase the duration of the Caps Lock pop up notification the moment Caps Lock is enabled. Here's how:

    • In the Cortana search, type in Control Panel and click it in the search results.
    • Set the View by option to Large icons.
    • Click Ease of Access Center.
    • Select Make it easier to focus on tasks.
    • Scroll down to the Adjust time limits and flashing visuals section, make sure to uncheck the box to
      Turn off all unnecessary animations.
    • Under the option How long should Windows Notification dialogue boxes stay open, select your preferred duration.
    • Click Apply, then OK.

    If this doesn't work, then you may search the web for any 3rd party Caps Lock notifier apps or send us a feedback through our

    Feedback Hub
    .

    Feel free to let us know should you need further information.

    Regards
