It will be annoying to realize that sometimes when you are typing important file for a rush then all of a sudden you discover that the key for uppercase letters is locked or the Caps Lock is active. On this article, you will know the method to avoid the annoyance of unknowingly using the Caps Lock.

In the registry, you may change the functions of the keyboard which is applicable for Windows 7, XP, and Vista, respectively.

Now, here are the methods you can use for taming the Caps Lock key yourself.


Caps Lock Disabling Method

The Caps Lock will no longer function if you employ this setup by performing these steps:

  • You may perform System Restore point creation or Registry backing up
  • The downloaded file should be unzipped
  • The unzipped file disable-capslock.reg should be right clicked
  • You may choose Merge in the menu which is right clicked. The UAC warnings will be given by Windows 7 or Vista
  • If you are using Windows Vista or 7, you need to response to the challenge given by UAC
  • Into the Registry, the file will be merged but there will be no indication or alert that it has taken place
  • Before you can view the change, you need to log off and log on

You will be taken to the fifth step immediately after you perform double clicking of the normal left of the Reg file instead of the third step’s right clicking option which will depend on the setup of your system.


Caps Lock Changing to Shift Method

You may download from Change Caps Lock key to Shift entry when you go to the same page mentioned on Caps Lock Disabling Method. You may perform the same set of procedure but not that of the third step which involves the file.


Back to the Basics Method

From the link Restore Caps Lock, you may download on the same page like before and follow the same procedure performed above if you don’t like the changing of Caps Lock function results.
