    Keyboard caps lock


    I have just bought a keyboard with larger characters on the keys and its good except for one small niggle. The warning light for caps lock is very small. I am a one fingered typist, and don't look at the screen until I have at least completed a sentence. This results in a lot of backspacing to get rid of unwanted capital letters.
    I have had Logitech keyboards in the past which came with software which included a large warning on screen when the caps lock was on. Being left handed, I rarely use the shift button, except for changing characters.
    Is there an app which can put the warning on screen?*Think

    :)

    Windows 10 Caps Lock light


    Strangely enough, since updating to 9879, the caps lock light on my keyboard does not work.

    I know it may seem small but it is really annoying not knowing when caps is on or not. My keyboard is backlit and the keys light up fine but the light on the capslock key does not.

    I'm dualing booting with Windows 8.1 and if I switch back to 8.1, the caps lock button light works fine, so I know the light it self is not the problem.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    No caps lock indicator with new keyboard?


    I got a new keyboard. It does not have a light that shows caps lock on or off.

    And a desktop indicator no longer shows caps lock as being turned on or off.

    How can I make Windows indicate the caps lock setting?

    Thank you for your help.

    Disable Caps Lock on Windows 10?

    The below does not disable CAPS LOCK; instead it converts CAPS LOCK into SHIFT LOCK.

    • Right-click Start
    • Choose Control Panel.
    • Under Clock, Language and Region, choose
      Change input methods.
    • On the left, choose
      Advanced Settings.
    • Near the bottom, click on
      Change language bar hot keys (this is a blue link)
    • On the Advanced Key Settings tab, select Press the Shift key
      radio button.
    • Click OK, then Save
    After this change:

    • You press the CAPS LOCK key puts the keyboard in all-caps mode
    • You press the SHIFT key to turn off CAPS LOCK and exit all-caps mode.
      • Note that pressing CAPS LOCK again
        will not turn off CAPS LOCK; only by pressing either SHIFT key will CAPS LOCK turn off.
    This is similar behavior to how the SHIFT LOCK key works on typewriters.
